  • Enter the all New Fog Computing

    The all new Fog computing is here! Is it a step further towards cloud or a new era all together which can replace cloud computing?

    Fog computing is a decentralized architecture terminology. It collaborates with one or more edge node devices to serve as an extension to cloud computing. It provides the subsequent amount of localized control, configuration and management and such other additional features for end devices. However, in the case of cloud computing data needs to access the central mainframe. Fog computing allows the cloud-based services expand their reach to the edge of a network of devices which aids in offering local and quick access to edge devices

      Hello Crystal,

      Fog computing has several benefits over cloud computing. Although it uses basic cloud computing technology at its core, it overcomes several limitations of the cloud computing technology. Also, it helps to boost usability and accessibility in different computing environments.

      Some of the upsides of fog computing are:
      • Globally distributed network helps minimal downtime
      • Optimal operational expense and Load balancing
      • Better Interconnectivity
      • Maximize network bandwidth utilization
      • Business Agility
      • Enhanced QoS and Latency Reduction

          Fog computing can be perceived both in large cloud systems and big data structures. It makes reference to the growing difficulties in accessing information objectively. This causes lack of quality of the content that we procure. The effects of fog computing on cloud computing and big data systems may vary. However, one of the common aspects that can be extracted is a limitation in the accurate content distribution that has been tackled with the creation of metrics which helps to improve accuracy.

            The problem with cloud computing — as anyone with a slow data connection will tell you — is bandwidth. Fog computing, also sometimes called edge computing, solves the problem by keeping data closer “to the ground,” so to speak, in local computers and devices, rather than routing everything through a central data center in the cloud.
