Real-Time Big Data: the JUNIPER Approach

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Cloud computing offers the possibility for Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) to offload computation and utilise large stored data sets in order to increase the overall system utility. However, for cloud platforms and applications to be effective for CPS, they need to exhibit real-time behaviour so that some level of performance can be guaranteed to the CPS. This paper considers the infrastructure developed by the EU JUNIPER project for enabling real-time big data systems to be built so that appropriate guarantees can be given to the CPS components. The technologies developed include a real-time Java programming approach, hardware acceleration to provide performance, and operating system resource management (time and disk) based upon resource reservation in order to enhance timeliness.
