Research Centre for Parallel Computing (CPC) is one of the first University Research Centres at the University of Westminster. It has two missions. First, it is, as a centre of excellence in distributed and high-performance parallel computing, involved in research and development in Distributed and Parallel Computing, particularly in the domain of cloud, fog and edge computing. To support the management of high-performance computing and data intensive applications in the Cloud, the CPC developed the MiCADO (Microservice-based Cloud Application Level Dynamic Orchestrator) solution. MiCADO deploys and dynamically executes applications in the Cloud considering their constantly changing requirements. MiCADO was extended to MiCADO-Edge to support application management in the cloud-to-edge continuum. Beyond core research and development activities , the CPC also collaborates and supports other research teams within and outside the University in different disciplines, and also industry communities, especially in the manufacturing and healthcare sectors. This cooperation could be either consultancy or joint research projects. The cooperation could include problem investigation, developing concept, elaboration of proof-of-concept and developing prototypes within joint research projects.
