Fog computing aims to support novel real-time applications by extending cloud resources to the network edge. This technology is highly heterogeneous and comprises a wide variety of devices interconnected through the so-called fog layer. Compared to traditional cloud infrastructure, fog presents more varied reliability challenges, due to its constrained resources and mobility of nodes. This paper summarizes current research efforts on fault tolerance and dependability in fog computing and identifies less investigated open problems, which constitute interesting research directions to make fogs more dependable.View Original Article
