Fog-Assisted Operational Cost Reduction for Cloud Data Centers

Preprint English OPEN
Yu, Liang; Jiang, Tao; Zou, Yulong;

In this paper, we intend to reduce the operational cost of cloud data centers with the help of fog devices, which can avoid the revenue loss due to wide-area network propagation delay and save network bandwidth cost by serving nearby cloud users. Since fog devices may n... View more
