Edge computing is a distributed computing paradigm which brings computation and data storage closer to the location where it is needed, to improve response times and save bandwidth.
FogHorn is an intelligent Internet of Things ( IoT) edge solution that delivers data processing and real-time inference where data is created.
Hybrid Cloud is a computing environment that combines a public cloud and a private cloud by allowing data and applications to be shared between them.
Kubernetes (k8s) is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
WWW2 and WWW3 (k8s) are hostnames or subdomains, typically used to identify a series of closely related websites within a domain, such as www.example.com, www2.example.com, and www3.example.com; the series may be continued with additional numbers: WWW4, WWW5, WWW6 etc.
