Fog Computing

Online user-driven task scheduling for FemtoClouds

In Fog Computing, FemtoClouds are emerging computing systems consisting of a set of heterogeneous mobile devices whose users allow to run tasks offloaded by other users. FemtoClouds are well suited to run Bag-of-Tasks (BoTs) applications, but they …

Profit-aware coalition formation in fog computing providers: A game-theoretic approach

We consider fog computing scenarios where data generated by a set of IoT applications need to be processed locally by a set of fog nodes, belonging to distinct Fog Infrastructure Providers (FIPs) sharing the same co-location facility, with the aim of …

WQR-UD: An online scheduling algorithm for FemtoClouds

FemtoClouds are computing platforms, implementing the Fog Computing paradigm, consisting in an ensemble of heterogeneous mobile devices whose users agree to run the tasks offloaded by other users. FemtoClouds are well suited for the execution of …

A game-theoretic approach to coalition formation in fog provider federations

In this paper we deal with the problem of making a set of Fog Infrastructure Providers (FIPs) increase their profits when allocating their resources to process the data generated by IoT applications that need to meet specific QoS targets in face of …

Profit-aware Resource Management for Edge Computing Systems

Edge Computing (EC) represents the most promising solution to the real-time or near-real-time processing needs of the data generated by Internet of Things devices. The emergence of Edge Infrastructure Providers (EIPs) will bring the EC benefits to …
