Fog/Edge Computing Gets Its Own Industry Consortium: Part One
In late November, a number of technology giants, including ARM, Cisco, Intel, Microsoft and Dell, in addition to Princeton University Edge Laboratory, founded a new industry group dedicated to fog computing, the OpenFog Consortium. The objective of the new group is to promote and “accelerate the deployment of Fog technologies through the development of an open architecture, core technologies including the capabilities of distributed computing, networking, and storage, as well as the leadership needed to realize the full potential of IoT.” To do so, the consortium will initially build a series of frameworks and architectures based on existing standards and proven approaches that will be successively used to develop testbeds, use cases and other deliverables. According to the press release, the initial work on frameworks and architecture will be realized in early 2016.
