How Is Iot Linked With Fog?

The Internet of things is developing gradually and is leaving a mark in almost all domains. High-speed data processing, analytics and with less response times has become mandatory in all applications and software’s and it is turning out to be a tough task to meet these requirements in the current centralized cloud computing technique used by the present IoT systems. Organizations storing large amounts of data on the cloud find it difficult to cope with the swift changes in the cloud technologies, making them dependent on the service providers. Security, Privacy and Complexity in building their private cloud still seems challenging for the Cloud Computing Sector (Lebied, 2017).
