Cyborg architecture

Cyborg design can be described by following diagram:


cyborg-api - cyborg-api is a cyborg service that provides REST API interface for the Cyborg project. It supports POST/PUT/DELETE/GET operations and interacts with cyborg-agent and cyborg-db via cyborg-conductor.

cyborg-conductor - cyborg-conductor is a cyborg service that coordinates interaction, DB access between cyborg-api and cyborg-agent.

cyborg-agent - cyborg-agent is a cyborg service that is responsible for interaction with accelerator backends via the Cyborg Driver. For now the only implementation in play is the Cyborg generic Driver. It will also handle the communication with the Nova placement service. Cyborg-Agent will also write to a local cache for local accelerator events.

Vendor drivers - Cyborg can be integrated with drivers for various accelerator device types, such as FPGA, GPU, NIC, and so forth. You are welcome to extend your own driver for a new type of accelerator device.
