Abstract

Fog computing provides a distributed infrastructure at the edges of the network, resulting in low-latency access and faster response to application requests when compared to centralized clouds. With this new level of computing capacity introduced between users and the data center-based clouds, new forms of resource allocation and management can be developed to take advantage of the Fog infrastructure. A wide range of applications with different requirements run on end-user devices, and with the popularity of cloud computing many of them rely on remote processing or storage. As clouds are primarily delivered through centralized data centers, such remote processing/storage usually takes place ..
