English abstract:
The emergence of the Internet of Things along with
the trend to create smart applications which automate everyday
tasks (e.g., smart homes, smart factories, etc.), have given rise
to fog computing. In fog computing, various compute nodes that
span from the cloud to the edge of the network, are used for
distributing the computations of the smart applications in order
to reduce the communication latency, and to improve the bandwidth
utilization. Due to these advantages, many fog computing
systems have already been proposed in the literature. Most of
these systems assume that the participating compute nodes are
organized hierarchically, and aim at deploying the applications
on these compute nodes, in a way that provides benefits (e.g.,
low communication latency between the applications and the
users). However, the problem of how to organize the participating
compute nodes hierarchically, is usually not discussed. This is a
serious concern in fog computing because fog computing systems
should be able to add new compute nodes dynamically, and still
maintain the same hierarchical structure that provides benefits.
For this reason, in this paper, we discuss the problem of creating
scalable fog computing systems that grow dynamically.
