D-SCOPE accelerator is designed to seamlessly integrate complex orchestration problems across network-connected hosts from the edge to the cloud. An edge application using Computer Vision and Inference Engines is an interesting application domain with a wide variety of interesting use cases e.g., Crowd Analysis, Traffic Analysis, or Facial Recognition and Analysis.
The D-SCOPE helps manage the optimal placement of individual components by resource marshaling, orchestration, and life-cycle management of edge applications. It supports network programming by enabling data routing for inter-component communication (RTSP, messaging) using SDN-Controller. It enables horizontal scaling of networks and applications based on the number of features, objects, segments, video feeds, etc. With micro-service chaining, it enables the convergence of local processing to global processing and orchestration of components based on sensor location.
