CDISC was designed to scale from its outset. This is either within a unit such as memory or storage, but also by joining units together to form scaled platforms using virtualisation technologies to enable shared environments and pooling of resources.
CDISC is made up of reusable modules (building blocks). Much like scaffolding it is possible to use CDISC to acheive a wide range of outcomes, all from the same underpinning modular building blocks.
CDISC has been designed so it can be used for a wide range of uses. It does that by being scalable, modular but also adaptable. This might be by adding a network switch or a router via the Removeable Network Module or additional compute for virtualised network functions.
The ability to lift, carry, transport, store, rack or mount CDISC was a key design metric. We know that edge devices need to be portable so the can be used in the environments they were designed. To us, portability is mesaure of size, weight and an objects overall dimensions.
LOEN must be simple to build and the blueprints simple to run on different LOEN enabled edge devices
Orchestration at the edge needs embedded intelliegence and self sufficience - LOEN enables both
CIMS enables a holistic view of the platform by ingesting, analysing, visualising and alerting from a scalable set of sensors within a CDISC platform
IT systems management does not need to be hard. CIMS provides multiple views of information in modern simple visualisations.
CIMS has a built in event management system which is extenable via APIs and scripts. This ensures that CIMS adapts with the systems it supports.
Security is central to the CIMS concept. This is acheived through device protection and trusted code execution, secure communications, and secure storage.
