Expect a computational tidal wave by 2020.By then, data traveling to and from an estimated 20 billion IoT devices will flood datacenters—outpacing data flowing from datacenters to users by a factor of 275.Yet there’s a wealth of computing power in underused devices that often lie dormant for long stretches of time, collectively hundreds of times as large as Amazon’s ubiquitous global cloud.Fog computing, defined
For the uninitiated, fog computing extends centralized cloud datacenters to include existing computing devices, creating a network of low-latency computing and storage that can process data closer to where it is produced.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
