For the IoT, Fog May Clear Up the Cloud

Posted January 01, 2017 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Visionaries have predicted how Internet of Things sensors and similar edge devices will supply big data to be analyzed in the cloud, but the reality may not be so simple. Fog computing aims to put a level of computing power near the edge devices to concentrate data, cache it, and even provide pre-processing for cloud computing. Fog computing can leverage existing dumb sensors and may reduce the need for smart sensors.

Especially does not work in industrial IoT scenarios. But "Fog" may be a solution to the extreme security risk industrial application on the cloud take. As the cyber war Trump started takes hold, industry will quickly realize this. Then when they learn to get their brains of operation (head) out of the cloud (internet), the fog (LAN) may be all they have left.

Naturally it will all be powered by vaporware.
