Edge, Fog Computing Contribute to IoT, Data Analytics

Source: Thinkstock Fog and edge computing cater to IoT devices. Traditionally, data is produced at the edge of the network and transported back to the datacenter. Edge and fog computing process the data at the source or the edge of the network. The network edge is any computing and network resources along the path between data sources and cloud data centers. Fog and edge computing increase operational efficiency by allowing end users to access smaller, more specific data instead of accessing information in a centralized, cloud-based infrastructure along with data they will never need to access. Breaking down the […]
