Fog computing, also known as edge computing, is defined as an extension of the cloud computing paradigm from the core of the network to the edge of the network. It majorly provides computation, storage, and services between end devices and traditional cloud servers. Servers and other intermediate nodes are majorly being considered as the core of the network. Desktop machine, mobiles, smart devices, machine, or any equipment connected to a network as endpoint device/machine are considered as edge devices.

The fog computing model is primarily suited for the Internet of Things and real-time big data analytics. It also supports distributed data collection points and is beneficial for advertising, entertainment, personal computing, and other such applications. Fogging can provide benefits by the introduction of vital information and services to the user at the network edge. Hence, the researchers and companies are more inclined toward the development of applications and services of fog computing.
