When the clouds descend to the Earth, we call that fog. When cloud computing moves closer to your end users, we do not really have a name for that yet, but I have seen the term “fog computing” and think it fits. We are seeing new environments emerge from vendors that allow you to treat computation as something to locate around the world for low-latency client interactions. Think of it like what Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) do for static files (HTML, JavaScript, stylesheets, etc.) but for multi-tenancy software. It’s a great way to mix serverless and microservices initiatives with the realities of global deployment.
