Current datacenters for the “traditional” cloud and state-of-the-art networking solutions continue to lack the speed and capacity for the fully immersive experience required by most demanding applications in the Metaverse. In particular, due to its almost zero latency requirements, Metaverse datacenters will need to be in very close proximity to end users (and their localized groups), with network speeds that must be blazing fast. A fleet of decentralized local edge datacenters will be essential to enable distributed Metaverse computing, i.e., the cloud continuum for the Metaverse. The cloud continuum concept refers to the opportunity of taking advantage of a broad computing context that mixes Cloud, Edge/Fog and IoT resources, thus providing a continuum of computing services that pervasive systems and applications can access in a transparent and uniform fashion. Particularly, pervasive applications for the Metaverse will need a flexible and dynamic provisioning of computing services along the IoT-to-Edge-to-Cloud path, that is, a provisioning system capable of orchestrating (activating, deactivating, updating, integrating, etc.) processing, storage, and networking resources offered by heterogeneous infrastructures possibly owned by different providers. This summarizes what we envision as the main challenges for Metaverse computing for the next decade, and this is the general research area this track is centered on.
