The cloud-based technologies have been evolving constantly. They have become more complex, more sophisticated and more productive. One such flaw which restricted the use of cloud technology in time-critical applications was the delay involved in sending data and getting back processed data. Such delay made it impossible to use cloud technology in real-time application and decision making systems. Like an automated boom barrier if the data has to be sent to a remote cloud server for processing the boom barrier would never work on-time. Hence local processing was required in such time critical equipment.
The cloud technology of the future which removes this constraint is called “Fog Computing” or “Edge Computing”. This technology of the future moves the processing power to the edge of the network, rather than to a center point of cloud. The data is processed at the location it is been generated and then moved on to a central server. This enables the use of cloud technology in a real-time scenario.
