Abstract

The cloud is scalable and cost-efficient, but it is not ideal for hosting all applications. Fog computing proposes an alternative of offloading some computation to the edge. Which applications to offload, where to, and when is not entirely clear yet due to our lack of understanding of potential edge infrastructures. Through a number of experiments, we showcase the feasibility and readiness of micro-clouds formed by collections of Raspberry Pis to host a range of fog applications, particularly for network-constrained environments.
