Distributed Computing for IoT: Data Management in a Fog Computing Environment

Whereas the evolution of ICT has taken us from mainframes to PCs and back to the Cloud (e.g. from centralized to distributed to centralized computing), clearly distributed computing will have an increasingly important role in the digital economy. Edge Computing includes a number of technologies including Mobile Edge Computing, Fog Computing, and Cloudlets — to mention a few. In this article, we take a quick look at some of the Fog Computing and Data Management issues and challenges.

SDN/NFV: Enhancing Network Capacity and Functionality

SDN was originally developed to address the problems of large data centers, where virtualization of hardware and operating system is important (think cloud computing). It will likely spread to other areas, including the WAN, where virtualization and the ability to dial up bandwidth and related characteristics would be extremely valuable as well. NFV is an outgrowth of SDN in many respects, concentrating on backbone networks, where the need to rapidly reconfigure resources is key.

Computing in the Cloud: A Practical Review

If you were to read everything that you can, listen to every available expert and ask the really tough questions about cloud computing, you may draw the same conclusion that we have drawn. Cloud computing is like high school kids driving muscle cars: everyone is talking about it, very few are actually doing it and nobody is good at it. The main issue we see is that the various industry groups are going in their own direction, doing their own thing, with only the loosest of coordination between the groups. And, when there is coordination, it is more a result of shared members than of any formal effort. At least in the last battle royale – the packet vs circuit debate – there were two clear thought leaders: the Internet Engineering Task Force (IEF) and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). The US National Institutes of Science and Technology (NIST) may beg to differ on this point but we’ll discuss this more later.
