In my mind, fog as used here is basically a Cisco-conceived marketing term for all the stuff among end nodes, gateways and edge networks--IoT short of the cloud.

Fog is close to the edge and distributed  aimed to lower latency, save bandwidth and generate some revenue. Everybody wants a slice of this pie.

Thanks Elizabeth. If it's local, isn't it just a client with its own server(s)?

@resistion Actually, 'fog' means local cloud.  Just another way to say you're going to gather and process data locally and send the results. A smart idea actually but I'm not sure we need another term for it.

Fog is not negative as in "unclear".  The branding we are trying to create around fog should be thought of as " all the good things of the cloud, but closer to the ground".  The term is gaining traction in important IoT circles, and is usually used in contexts of putting lots of compute, networking and storage capabilities in a hierarchy between the bottom of the cloud and the top of the intelligent IoT things.  Unlike the related concept of edge computing, fog is not a single layer or simple gateway function, it is really a hierarchy of powerful resources.  If you want to learn more, there are still a few tickets available for the Fog World Congress next week in Santa Clara.  Should be an excellent conference

Does 'fog' mean 'cloud' with negative connotations?
