There have been wild predictions recently that the edge will overtake if not kill the cloud in terms of volume of data processed. While it is helpful to raise awareness of the potential of edge computing, which is undoubtedly huge, it is also an oversimplification. Instead of adding fuel to this dispute, I prefer to offer peace and bring those two fundamental building blocks together.
Managing the Fog Fog computing and edge computing are ways of bringing cloud computing capabilities to the edge of the network and closer to the rapidly growing number of connected devices and sensors that consume computing services and generate massive amounts of data. This raises difficulties in terms of the architecture and management of computing systems and it is exactly this issue which is being addressed by the mF2C project.
It's hard to keep up with IT trends. Hyperconvergence is one of the latest buzz words in IT and cloud computing. It embodies an attempt to simplify IT systems and provide simpler hardware and software solutions from which to build integrated cloud services. It's not surprising, since the IT world is swimming in complexity and most C-level executives are trying to understand why they don't reap the benefit of recent moves toward cloud computing and software-defined everything.
