Hughes Systique’s D-SCOPE, Distributed Service Chaining and Orchestration Platform for the Edge.

Overview of D-SCOPE

Hughes Systique’s D-SCOPE is an application which provides network service orchestration for deploying computation and bandwidth intensive multi-tier applications, end to end, from the edge-cloud to back-end high performance datacenters.

Application Description

D-SCOPE is an end-to-end network service orchestrator responsible for optimal placement of network functions of a service at the edge or the datacenter and the establishing the network connectivity between these multi-site network functions using a SDN controller. Application developers can use a manifest file to define the partitioning constraints and resource requirements of their respective cloud-native applications. Based on the hardware resource and EPA requirements of the application components, D-SCOPE instantiates the different parts of this application on the edge or the datacenter and then uses the SDN controller to establish a service function chain from the edge to the datacenter for traffic flow. D-SCOPE uses the Intel OpenNESS service for the edge cloud management and OpenStack for the backend cloud.

Prerequisites

D-SCOPE supports plugins for the following software:

OpenNESS 20.03 => for Edge site
OpenStack Train => for Datacenter site
ONOS SDN controller v2.3
For D-SCOPE platform’s installation:
Pre-deployed Kubernetes cluster
For successful operation:
Network reachability between D-SCOPE and Edge/Datacenter/SDN controller
Network reachability between SDN controller and Edge/Datacenter sites

Usage

Repository

The D-SCOPE is available in the HughesSystique/d-scope repository. To obtain it, just clone the repo.

$ git clone https://github.com/HughesSystique/d-scope

Then, into d-scope/helm-charts folder there is helm chart for installing it.

Where to Purchase

If you wish to use D-SCOPE to orchestrate your application in a 3-tier environment - locally, at edge and at DC, you can try the helm charts given above for installing D-SCOPE on K8 cluster. The README gives the pre-requisites, installation and verification details.

This will help you deploy your application in a multi-site environment, using D-SCOPE - where the edge is based on Intel OpenNESS nodes and DC is based on OpenStack. D-SCOPE supports plugins for these virtualization environments by default. D-SCOPE also supports plugins for ONOS SDN controller to realize an end-to-end SFC.

If you are looking for leveraging D-SCOPE with any other virtualization platforms or SDN controllers, we can implement the corresponding plugins and integrate in the existing D-SCOPE platform, as per your requirements.
