Consequently, Edge Computing opportunities are lost due to cumbersome and data assets-agnostic processes for end-to-end deployment over the Cloud-to-Edge continuum. In this paper, we introduce MEDAL—an intelligent Cloud-to-Edge Data Fabric to support Data Operations (DataOps) across the continuum and to automate management and orchestration operations over a combined view of the data and the resource layer. MEDAL facilitates building and managing data workflows on top of existing flexible and composable data services, seamlessly exploiting and federating IaaS/PaaS/SaaS resources across different Cloud and Edge environments. We describe the MEDAL Platform as a usable tool for Data Scientists and Engineers, encompassing our concept and we illustrate its application though a connected cars use case.
