As the Internet of Everything (IoE) heats up, Cisco engineers put forward a new networking, compute, and storage paradigm that extends to the edge of the network []. Fog Computing is a paradigm that stretches out or extends Cloud Computing and services to the systems or network edge. Like Cloud, Fog gives information/data, process or compute, storage, and application services to end-clients. The recognizing Fog attributes are its closeness to end-clients, its tightly packed geographical conveyance or distribution, and its backing for mobility. Services are facilitated at the network edge or even end devices, for example, set-top-boxes or end points. Thusly, Fog diminishes services latency, and enhances QoS, bringing about prevalent client experience. Fog Computing holds up up-and-coming Internet of Everything (IoE) applications that request real timing/unsurprising latency (Industrial computerization/automation, transportation, sensors networks and actuators). On account of its geographical distribution the Fog paradigm is very much situated for real-time huge information or big data and analytics. Fog bolsters compactly distributed data collection points, subsequently adding a fourth pivot to the frequently specified Big Data measurements such as volume, variety, and velocity.
