The Internet of things (IoT) 1 devices are increasingly becoming an integral part of our lives. It is estimated that the number of such devices will grow into billions within few years. These devices are highly distributed and have limited storage and processing capacity. To support the computational demand and the latency-sensitive applications of these distributed IoT devices, a new computing paradigm, Fog computing, has been introduced. Fog computing is considered as the promising extension of the Cloud computing paradigm that brings virtualized Cloud services to the edge of network to control the IoT devices. This paper introduces Fog commuting technologies and their applications to IoT.
