              Differential Computing Resource Reservation
               draft-liu-coin-differential-reservation-00

Abstract

   Computing in the network may require the embedded computing
   capability in the network device, such as gateway, switch, etc, and
   there might be so much distributed computing task in the network.
   Some new applications like AR/VR, motion control put forward higher
   demand of network than before, and AI is also considered to be used
   in the app and network.

   In order to satisfy their demands, network may not only need to
   reserve bandwidth resource, but also reserve computing resource.
   This document analyzes the requirements of Serial distributed
   computing model and give some reference solutions.

1.  Overview

   From cloud computing to edge computing, computing power is
   distributed to the customer side.  In the future network and
   computing convergence system, computing power will be distributed as
   ubiquitous endogenous resources in each node of the network.  The
   user's request can be satisfied by calling the nearest node resource,
   which is no longer limited to a specific node.

   Resource reservation is usually used to guarantee the QoS of specific
   application traffic.  The reservation of network resources is same in
   an end-to-end path, which means the reserved bandwidth resources will
   not change from the client to the server, but computing is different.
   Distributed computing will bring different computing power, and
   different resources need to be reserved for different nodes.  For
