Albeit several IoT applications have been recently deployed in several fields, including environment and industry monitoring, Smart Home, Smart Hospital and Smart Agriculture, current deployments are mostly host-oriented, which is undoubtedly limiting the attained benefits brought up by IoT. Indeed, future IoT applications shall benefit from service-oriented communications, where the communication establishment between end-points is not dependent on prior knowledge of the host devices in charge of providing the service execution. Rather, an end-user service execution request is mapped into the most suitable resources able to provide the requested service. Furthermore, this model is a key enabler for the design of future services in Smart Cities, e-Health, Intelligent Transportation Systems, among other smart scenarios. Recognized the benefits of this model in future applications, considerable research effort must be devoted for addressing several challenges yet unsolved, such as the ones brought up by the high dynamicity and heterogeneity inherent to these scenarios. In fact, service-oriented communication requires an updated view of available resources, mapping service requests into the most suitable resources taking several constraints and requirements into account, resilience provisioning, QoS-aware service allocation, just to name a few. This thesis aims at proposing and evaluating mechanisms for efficient resource allocation in service-oriented IoT scenarios through the employment of two distinct baseline technologies. In the first approach, the so-called Path Computation Element (PCE), designed to decouple the host-oriented routing function from GMPLS switches in a centralized element, is extended to the service-oriented PCE (S-PCE) architecture, where a service identifier (SID) is used to identify the service required by an end-user. In this approach, the service request is mapped to one or a set of resources by a 2-steps mapping scheme that enables both selection of suitable resources according to request and resources characteristics, and avoidance of service disruption due to possible changes on resources¿ location. In the meantime, the inception of fog computing, as an extension of the cloud computing concept, leveraging idle computing resources at the edge of the network through their organization as highly virtualized micro data centers (MDC) enabled the reduction on the network latency observed by services launched at edge devices, further reducing the traffic at the core network and the energy consumption by network and cloud data center equipment, besides other benefits. Envisioning the benefits of the distributed and coordinated employment of both fog and cloud resources, the Fog-to-Cloud (F2C) architecture has been recently proposed, further empowering the distributed allocation of services into the most suitable resources, be it in cloud, fog or both. Since future IoT applications shall present strict demands that may be satisfied through a combined fog-cloud solution, aligned to the F2C architecture, the second approach for the service-oriented resource allocation, considered in this thesis, aims at providing QoS-aware resource allocation through the deployment of a hierarchical F2C topology, where resource are logically distributed into layers providing distinct characteristics in terms of network latency, disruption probability, IT power, etc. Therefore, distinct strategies for service distribution in F2C architectures, taking into consideration features such as service transmission delay, energy consumption and network load. Concerning the need for failure recovery mechanisms, distinct demands of heterogeneous services are considered in order to assess distinct strategies for allocation of protection resources in the F2C hierarchy. In addition, the impact of the layered control topology on the efficient allocation of resources in F2C is further evaluated. Finally, avenues for future work are presented.

Internet of things (IoT) refers to things such as sensors and actuators interacting with each other to reach common goals. It enables multiple applications in sectors ranging from agriculture to health. Nowadays, applications and IoT infrastructure are tightly coupled and this may lead to the deployment of redundant IoT infrastructures, thus, cost inefficiency. Cloud computing can help in tackling the problem. It is a paradigm to quickly provision configured resources (computing, network, memory) on demand for cost efficiency. It has three layers, the infrastructure as a service (IaaS), the platform as a service (PaaS) and the software as a service (SaaS). Through the IaaS, configured hardware resources (CPU, storage, etc.) are provisioned on demand. However, designing and implementing an IoT IaaS architecture for the provisioning of IoT resource on demand remains very challenging. An example of a challenge is using the appropriate publishing and discovery mechanism suitable for IoT devices. Orchestrating a virtualized IoT device over several physical IoT devices is another challenge that needs to be addressed. The main contribution of this thesis is twofold. First, a novel IoT IaaS architecture is proposed where IoT devices can be provisioned as a configured infrastructure resource on demand via node virtualization. Second, the architecture is prototyped and evaluated using real-life sensors that support node virtualization. Node level virtualization achieves resource efficiency in contrast to middleware solutions. The essential architectural features, such as publication, discovery, and orchestration are identified and proposed. Two sets of a high-level interface are also introduced. A low-level uniform interface is suggested to decouple the IoT devices from the applications by allowing the applications to access the heterogeneous devices in a uniform way. In addition, a cloud management interface is proposed to expose the IoT IaaS to the cloud consumers (for example - the PaaS, the application, etc.) and allow them to provision the IoT resources. By allowing the capability sharing of the IoT devices using the node virtualization, the cost efficiency and energy efficiency are achieved in the proposed architecture. Addressing other challenges allowed the proposed architecture to expose the IoT devices to the IaaS in a more abstract manner. Thus allowing the application to provision the IoT resources on demand as well as handling the IoT device heterogeneity in the IaaS.
