What is Fog Computing?
Fog Computing utilizes decentralized and distributed computing resources and application services which are closer to the Edge, or actual point of use. Imagine if every corner had a cell phone repeater “in the Fog” - we would never drop a call. Fog is the most efficient network methodology to support fast transmission speeds, computing resources and utilization of storage, at large scale.
Benefits of Fog Computing
- Can leverage underutilized resources lowering costs
- Can leverage crowd computing expanding reach and scale
- Reduces data that needs to be transferred to the cloud thus improving security and performance
- Cloud is like having your car controlled from a computer miles away vs. the Fog which is like having the computer onboard - imagine the latency
- Integrates with the latest technologies including IoT, BlockChain, 3D & Virtual Reality engines, as well as analytics tools
The Future of the Fog
According to IDC, by 2020, 10% of the world’s data will be powered by Edge devices.
The Fog is already assisting semi-autonomous cars today as well as millions of IoT devices. The boundaries and opportunities for utilizing Fog Computing are limitless, and we believe the industry has the potential to exceed over $20 billion in the next 3 years.
“Build Once – Deploy Everywhere”
With the recent explosive demand for more edge computing and security within the Micro-Service and IoT space, FogChain's platform and software tool kit leverages the best of both worlds.
