NovaGenesis is a hybrid name-centric, service-centric, information-centric, host-centric, software-defined, self-organizing, mobile-friendly architecture.
Its objective is to create a clean slate architecture for new generation information exchanging and processing. It can be seen as a Future Internet initiative. It aims at creating a new environment for convergent technology evolution. It started in 2008 at Inatel, Minas Gerais, Brazil.
NovaGenesis project aims at creating a new ICT environment to support the full, convergent, and accelerated technology evolution we are experiencing today.
NovaGenesis supports the idea that all technologies are converging to a radical new, worldwide, overspread, convergent architecture for information exchanging and processing.
NovaGenesis believes that a clean slate architecture is required to create the ideal environment to continue technology evolution in a more cohesive, synergistic, efficient, flexible, and accelerated way.
NovaGenesis means "new beginning". The name came from the idea that a radical new environment for ICT can create a new beginning for digital technology evolution. We are just in the beginning of the information age!
NovaGenesis adopts the Internet of Information and Services (IoIS) paradigm, where information-centric and service-centric approaches are combined to integrate information treatment, storage, and exchanging.
The Figure above illustrates NovaGenesis digital business ecossystem. It is logically separated on several portions or regions. At the bottom region a complete ecossytem of basic (simple) services provide the fundamental communication, storage, and processing capabilities. Those basic services are combined to support a core portion, where some key distributed systems were implemented. Over these systems, a set of intermediate distributed systems provide more sophisticated services like knowledgment and trust networks formation, as an example. The upper portion of the achitecture is inhabited by the final high level applications, such as ICT infrastructure management, regulation, supervision, and governance.
