-The RoboEarth Cloud Engine, aka Rapyuta, is a platform as a service ( [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Cloud_computing#​Service_Models|PaaS]] ) framework ​for robots. The framework is built upon a clone based model [1]. Each robot connected to the RoboEarth Cloud Engine will have a system level clone on the cloud giving them the ability to move their heavy computation into the cloud. In addition, the system clones are tightly (high bandwidth) interconnected providing a useful platform for muti-robot deployments.+Rapyuta. a.k.a. the RoboEarth Cloud Engine, is an open source cloud robotics ​framework. The framework is built upon a clone based model [1]. Each robot connected to the RoboEarth Cloud Engine will have a system level clone on the cloud giving them the ability to move their heavy computation into the cloud. In addition, the system clones are tightly (high bandwidth) interconnected providing a useful platform for muti-robot deployments.
  
 The system level clone is implemented using linux containers, a light weight virtual mechanism. Therefore the terms [container] and [clone] will be used interchangeably in the documentation. Communication with the robots happens over the websocket protocol, providing a full duplex communication channel between the robot and the cloud with predefined messages. The system level clone is implemented using linux containers, a light weight virtual mechanism.
