Context: The unprecedented expansion of Cloud Computing services and Internet of things (IoT) combined with the recent advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data analytics techniques is opening the door for new breeds of intelligent services and applications. Such services and applications require a large computing capacity to perform well. Unfortunately, in dynamic and mobile environments, characterized by intermittent connectivity, it becomes challenging to run such services and applications with a guaranteed performance, especially when it is not possible to rely on any fixed infrastructure giving access to cloud platforms with powerful servers.
