Fog Computing: Characteristics and Challenges
Author Name:
Shabnam Kumari, Surender Singh, Radha
Abstract: In cloud computing, the word cloud (also phrased as "the cloud") is used as a metaphor for "the Internet," so the phrase cloud computing means "a type of Internetbased computing". It can also be defined as a group of computers and servers connected together over the Internet to form a network. Though cloud computing offers several leverages, but it has some downside too, that during load balancing of data in cloud data centers the internet faces problems of network congestion, less bandwidth utilization, fault tolerance and security etc. This is where the concept of “Fog Computing” comes to play. It easily transfers sensitive data without delaying to distributed devices. Fog is similar to the cloud only difference lies in the fact that it is located more close to end users to process and give response to the client in less time. Fog Computing, also termed as “fogging”, is a distributed infrastructure in which a smart device manages certain application processes or services at the border of the network, but others are still managed in the cloud. It is, essentially, a central layer between the cloud and the hardware to enable more efficient data processing, analysis and storage, which is achieved by reducing the amount of data which needs to be transported to the cloud. Keywords: cloud computing, fogging, fog computing services, load balancing
