From: Fog and Edge Computing Complement Cloud Storage, Building Operating Management
The rise of IoT devices is challenging IT networks and cloud providers to provide enough data storage. As a result, there’s an increased need to compute data closer to where it originates to provide real-time insights and create efficiencies in the workplace.
According to FNTS Enterprise Architect Mike Kramer, Fog and Edge computing layers are an extension of the cloud that work together to collect, process and analyze urgent data to determine if immediate action needs to be taken to triage issues.
