Cloud computing has developed the performance of services and applications. However, it takes a considerable amount of time for data transferring due to its high latency. As a result, the functioning of the latency-sensitive applications gets degraded. In this case, the emergence of fog computing has enhanced cloud computing with decreased latency and allowing it to expand the overall reach of the cloud service.

Advantages of Fog Computing

The development in fog computing provides institutions with more and more feasible choices to process data, in case of every requirement. Furthermore, it reduces the bandwidth needed to transfer data on the extended cloud computing technologies. In addition to that, fog computing can also be used in circumstances having no accessibility to bandwidth connection so that the data generated can be accessed afterwards. Fog computing also guarantees the user’s security for cybernetic firewalls to divided network traffic.

The primary objective behind the advent of fog computing is to make sure that time-sensitive data can be managed on a fog node without any need of directing it back to the cloud. Nonetheless, the cloud still carries the potential to store and analyze any prevailing data. Moreover, fog computing provides several other benefits as well.

The leading advantage offered by fog computing is reduced latency, and as a result, data need not be sent to the cloud additionally for processing. It further helps in increasing security and compliance as well. As fog computing helps manage data locally without the requirement of bandwidth, it reduces the additional cost of bandwidth.

Fog computing has an upper-hand over cloud services for local processing as in case the organization has numerous local users and IoT, fog computing would help in surging the overall effectiveness and speed of the service.

With the dependency on fog computing growing more and more with each passing year, the Global Fog Computing Market is expected to grow enormously in the upcoming decade. The increasing selection of smart devices to assist software-defined networks, smart cities, smart grids, smart buildings, and vehicle networks across the world is the main factor propelling the growth of the market.
