Farid Mheir's curator insight, May 19, 7:38 AM

New MEME: fog computing. The idea that cloud computing requires very fast (and low latency) networks to deliver useful processing in real-time. But even high-speed Internet is not fast enough in most cases, cellular networks are even worse. This is where fog computing comes in: push computing to the edge f the network, in routers and devices that are close to the user devices and let them perform some of the work. Great idea, kind of like the Content Delivery Networks that Akamai and others have built over the years.


That being said, this does not appear to be a revolution but a minor evolution  in the cloud computing era.
