Episode 50

As the technology of IoT evolves the concept of a distributed computing environment is becoming increasingly relevant. A key component of this architecture is fog computing, blending the cloud to the edge. Being able to access computing, networking and storage resources locally makes sense for many classes of IoT deployments.

Although 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.
