* Understand what Fog Computing is and what role it plays in Internet of Things * Understand the relationship between Fog and Cloud Computing * Learn how Vortex enables Fog and Cloud Computing architectures
An increasing number of Consumer and Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) applications require some form of edge computing characterized by low latency, peer-to-peer communication, and mobility. Fog Computing has recently emerged as the paradigm to address the needs of edge computing in IoT applications. Fog Computing complements Cloud Computing to allow the design and implementation of IoT systems that scale better, are more reactive and in which local communication and decision making is enabled whenever possible.
This webcast will introduce the key concepts behind Fog Computing, compare and contrast it with Cloud Computing and explain how the Vortex platform enables Fog Computing architectures.
