02 Apr Fog Computing Extending the Cloud Paradigm Closer to the Source
lthough these are still early days in IoT deployments, the benefits of fog computing are already coming into focus. As deployment scale goes up, so too does the amount of data captured and the volume can quickly become overwhelming. Depending on the scale, running security, local analytics and data optimization closer to the sensors can be beneficial.
Does all your data need to be moved to the cloud? The amount of localized computing brought to bear in your deployment depends on the application and its required performance, cost and the data fidelity you want to capture and keep.
Watch this video to get an overview on fog computing.
