Overview of Cloud and Fog Computing (ComSoc Distinguished Speaker)

on August 3, 2018 from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Speaker Dr. Zhensheng Zhang
Topic Info

Recent deployment in the Internet to support Internet of Things (IoT) includes cloud computing and fog computing. In this talk, a high-level overview of the basic infrastructure and platform for cloud computing is presented, development status as well as challenges will be reviewed. We also go over fog computing, highlight the key differences between cloud computing and fog computing, and discuss under which conditions one is preferred than the other. Cloud computing is the technology of stocking and accessing data, applications and programs over the Internet instead of a local/home storage such as a computer’s hard disk and uses networks of shared IT architecture containing large pools of systems and servers. Fog computing, also known as fogging, is a disseminated computing infrastructure in which application and its services are handled either at the network edge or in a remote data center – cloud. Fog computing improves efficiency and trims the amount of data that requires to be transmitted for processing, analysis and storage by placing the data close to the end user.
