The Cloudy, Foggy and Misty Internet of Things - Towards Fluid IoT Architectures Webcast
* Understand the differences between Cloud, Fog and Mist Computing * Learn about the new concept of Fluid Architectures * Learn how to build IoT systems that are fluid and can exploit the benefits of Cloud, Fog and Mist computing
Early Internet of Things (IoT) applications have been built around cloud-centric architectures where information generated at the edge by the "things" is conveyed and processed in a cloud infrastructure. These architectures centralize processing and decision making at the datacenter by assuming sufficient connectivity, bandwidth and latency.
As application of the IoT extends to industrial and more demanding consumer applications, the assumptions underlying cloud-centric architectures start to be violated as, - for many of these applications - connectivity, bandwidth and latency to the datacenter are a challenge.
Fog and Mist computing have emerged as forms of "Cloud Computing" closer to the "Edge" and to the "Things" that should alleviate the connectivity, bandwidth and latency challenges faced by Industrial and extremely demanding consumer IoT applications.
This Webcast, will (1) introduce Cloud, Fog and Mist Computing architectures for the Internet of Things, (2) explain their applicability with real-world use cases, and (3) introduce the concept of fluid IoT architectures and explain how these can be architected and built using PrismTech’s Vortex platform.
The webcast will last approximately one hour.
