Glossary Term:
Fog Computing

A term coined by Cisco, Fog Computing is an approach to networking backhaul that places a substantial portion of the data and processing at the edge of the network (on routers) rather than in the Cloud. Cisco associates the term IOx with the architecture that combines Linux with IOS. Fog Computing, which is meant to contrast with "Cloud Computing," is evocative of fog being close to the ground and is also known as Fog Networking and Fogging.
