Abstract: IoT-based applications need to be dynamically orchestrated on cloud-edge infrastructures for reasons such as performance, regulations, or cost. In this context, a crucial problem is facilitating the work of DevOps teams in deploying, monitoring, and managing such applications by providing necessary tools and platforms. The SODALITE@RT open-source framework aims at addressing this scenario. In this paper, we present the main features of the SODALITE@RT: modeling of cloud-edge resources and applications using open standards and infrastructural code, and automated deployment, monitoring, and management of the applications in the target infrastructures based on such models. The capabilities of the SODALITE@RT are demonstrated through a relevant case study.
