In this paper the authors discuss the role of virtualization and Software-Defined Infrastructure (SDI) in the design of future application platforms, and in particular the future Central Office (CO). A multi-tier computing cloud is presented in which resources in the smart edge of the network play a crucial role in the delivery of low-latency and data-intensive applications. Resources in the smart edge are virtualized and managed using cloud computing principles, but these resources are more diverse than in conventional data centers, including programmable hardware, GPUs, etc.
