FBase: A Replication Service for Data-Intensive Fog Applications

Abstract

The combination of edge and cloud in the fog computing paradigm enables a new breed of data-intensive applications. These applications, however, have to face a number of fog-specific challenges which developers have to repetitively address for every single application. In this paper, we propose a replication service specifically tailored to the needs of data-intensive fog applications that aims to ease or eliminate challenges caused by the highly distributed and heterogeneous environment fog applications operate in. Furthermore, we present our prototypical proof-of-concept implementation FBase that we have made available as open source.
