Enforcement of privacy policies. As the
first point where data from IoT sensors
meets the data owner's infrastructure,
Tier 2 is the ideal place to enforce the
data owner's privacy policies, instead
of releasing raw data into the cloud and
hoping it remains secure until it reaches
the cloud provider's data center. For
example, a healthcare company could
scan all data for personally identifiable
information, or PII, as soon as it enters
the micro data center, then mask or
encrypt that data in compliance with all
relevant data privacy regulations.

LIVING ON THE EDGE
So, who are the early adopters of edge
computing? Where does the technology
have immediate potential?
Much of the current pursuit of edge
computing is taking place in the multibillion-dollar gaming industry, where
a product or an entire company can
stand or fall on the quality of the realtime user experience. Even on today's
most powerful smartphones, a high-end
mobile gaming experience requires most
of the compute to happen in the cloud.

Cisco introduces the term " fog computing " to
describe the dispersed cloud infrastructures
needed to process big data and IoT data for
real-time low-latency applications.

A two-page internal report at the Pacific
Northwest National Laboratory uses the
term " edge computing " for the first time.
