Fog computing has reached new heights in the world of modern networking. Though it is not a replacement to cloud computing, however, it has helped the developers to overcome the technical complexities related to cloud computing by adding some advanced features to it.

First, let us know what fog computing is?

  • Fog computing aka fogging or fog networking is a term that is coined by Cisco. It is a decentralized computing structure that refers to extending cloud computing to the edge of an enterprise’s network.
  • Here, the resources get placed in logical locations somewhere in between the data source and the cloud, or we can say that fog computing involves bringing intelligence and processing closer to the data source.
