Fog computing is a decentralized computing platform, which is an extension to cloud, computing. [2]The main aim of fog computing or fogging is to erase the difficulties in earlier platforms and guide the computation nearer to its data sources and data centers. A Reduction is noticed in latency and costs of delivering the data. This can be highlighted as a major advantage of this distributed platform.[1]This novel platform provides reliability, fault tolerance and security. With off-loading data centers and reducing service latency, this technology is very well suited for IoT applications. [1]The security and privacy have always been a major challenge to cloud computing and related technologies which are handled by Fogging. [2]By bringing computation close to data sources there are many field of aspects that are improved with help of Fog Computing. The paper presents the comparison of fog computing with other computing technologies.
