Sardes is a research team located at INRIA Grenoble-Rhône-Alpes. It is associated with both INRIA and LIG.
The goal of the Sardes research team is to study the construction of MultiScale Open Systems.
MultiScale open systems are computer systems that can scale from resource-constrained embedded systems to cloud-based systems, and are characterized by the following attributes:
- Dynamicity: these systems undergo continuous evolution and operate in changing environments.
- Concurrency: these systems must deal with multiple concurrent events and activities.
- Distribution: these systems can span networks and geographically separated locations.
- Heterogeneity: these systems rely on different hardware, software and networking facilities, and host diverse applications.
