Cloud services in the Guifi.net community network
tl;dr
We propose a framework for building a collaborative distributed community cloud system that employs resources contributed by the members of the community network for provisioning infrastructure and software services. Expand

Clouds of small things: Provisioning infrastructure-as-a-service from within community networks
tl;dr
We propose to apply the principle of resource sharing of community networks, currently limited to the network bandwidth, to other computing resources, which leads to cloud computing in community networks. Expand

Efficient Compute at the Edge: Optimizing Energy Aware Data Structures for Emerging Edge Hardware
tl;dr
The advent of exascale computing, with the unpar¬alleled rise in the scale of data in Internet of Things (IoT), high performance computing (HPC), and big data domains, both at the center and the edge of the system, requires optimal exploitation of energy-efficient computing hardware dedicated for edge processing .

Prototyping Incentive-Based Resource Assignment for Clouds in Community Networks
tl;dr
We implement a prototype for the incentive-driven resource assignment component, deploy it in a test bed of community network nodes and evaluate its behaviour experimentally. Expand
