Fog computing aims at providing horizontal, system-level, abstractions to distribute computing, storage, control and networking functions closer to the user along a cloud-to-thing continuum. Whilst fog computing is increasingly recognized as the key paradigm at the foundation of Consumer and Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), most of the initiatives on fog computing focus on extending cloud infrastructure. As a consequence, these infrastructure falls short in addressing heterogeneity and resource constraints characteristics of fog computing environments.
Eclipse fog⌀5 (read as fog O-five or fog OS) is an Eclipse IoT Project that is building a fog computing infrastructure from the first principle. In other terms, Eclipse fog⌀5 has been designed to address the challenges induced by fog computing in terms of heterogeneity, decentralization, resource constraints, geographical scale, and security.

This webcast will introduce Eclipse fog⌀5, motivate its architecture and building blocks as well as provide a demonstration of Eclipse fog⌀5 provisioning applications that span from the cloud to the things.
