What is RADON Project about?
RADON is an EU-funded project under the Horizon H2020 research and innovation programme, which aims to unlock the benefits that the European software industry can derive from serverless FaaS (function-as-a-service). The project started in January 2019 and will last for 30 months.
In specific, RADON’s purpose is to create an upgraded framework for defining, developing and operating applications (DevOps) based on FaaS computing serverless technology. The methodology will strive to tackle complexity, harmonize the abstraction and actuation of action-trigger rules, avoid FaaS lock-in, and optimize decomposition and reuse through model-based FaaS-enabled development and orchestration.
What will RADON change practically?
In practice, at the end of the project, a wide range of software industry organizations (such as cloud service providers, software and mobile applications development companies, consulting and information systems integrators, along with researchers in the field of mechanical engineering and IT) will be able to exploit an integrated software development methodology and an open source toolchain allowing a high-degree of reuse and automation of functions, services and associated data pipelines.
