Cloud computing has a disadvantage: It can’t process data quickly enough for modern business applications.
As the Internet of Things proliferates, businesses face a growing need to analyze data from sources at the edge of a network, whether mobile phones, gateways, or IoT sensors.
The OpenFog Consortium, an industry collaboration among tech giants such as Cisco, Microsoft and Dell, has started to describe the foundation of how such fog computing architectures will operate from the cloud to the edge.
In this 35-page special report, you will learn:
- Principles of fog architectures.
- How fog computing tackles issues of scalability, security, autonomy, and programmability.
- Applications of fog computing in industry verticals.
