RAPID

Heterogeneous Secure Multilevel Remote Acceleration Service for Low-Power Integrated systems and Devices
Short Description: 

Development of an efficient heterogeneous cloud computing infrastructure, which can be used to seamlessly offload CPU-based and GPU-based tasks of applications running on low-power as well as more powerful devices over a heterogeneous network.

Full Description: 

RAPID proposes the development of an efficient heterogeneous CPU-GPU cloud computing infrastructure, which can be used to seamlessly offload CPU-based and GPU-based (using OpenCL API) tasks of applications running on low-power devices such as smartphones, notebooks, tablets, portable/wearable devices, robots, and cars to more powerful devices over a heterogeneous network (HetNet). In addition, RAPID proposes a secure unified model where almost any device can operate as an accelerated entity and/or as an accelerator serving other less powerful devices. Finally, a RAPID device can probe a Directory Server, which includes information for the accelerators, in order to automatically find and connect to the appropriate accelerators.
