In the DATE experiment, we explored the deployment of advanced services at the network edge to provide support for IoT data management services with a distributed microcloud infrastructure. By leveraging resources and datasets from the FIESTA-IoT testbed, the DATE project developed and conducted experiments to shape support services to be integrated in the Cloudy microcloud platform, which enables the deployment of IoT data management components. The project results are extensions developed and integrated in the microcloud platform that enable a more flexible and user-friendly deployment of applications, the integration of support services for being able to choose from a more diverse set of applications, and the evaluation of the platform with the deployment of components for IoT data management. The obtained improvements open up the Cloudy microcloud platform to a larger target audience and demonstrate the possibility of an open platform for IoT data management with low entry barriers as a mean to facilitate the deployment of innovative services by third parties.
