Young Researcher Dives in Dew Computing

Mane Tushar is a postgraduate student at Symbiosis International University in India. He is interested in dew computing research and wrote an article “Fog-Dew Architecture for Better Consistency.” See

Dew computing is an emerging research area with great potentials. Generally speaking, dew computing is the evolved form of traditional computing in the age of […]

The First-ever Dew Computing Conference

Dew computing is a new computing model appeared after the wide acceptance of cloud computing. While cloud computing uses centralized servers to provide various services, dew computing uses on-premises computers to provide decentralized, cloud-friendly, and collaborative micro services to end-users. Dew computing is an on-premises computer software-hardware organization paradigm in the cloud computing environment, which […]

General Cloud-dew Architecture

This figure describes the essential idea of dew computing. The green leaf represents an on-premises computer. The dew drops on the leaf represent some applications that are running inside the on-premises computer. These applications have two features: they provide services to users and/or devices independent of cloud services and they collaborate with cloud services.


Research Progress: Definition and Categorization of Dew Computing

A revised definition of dew computing has been proposed. This definition emphasizes two key features of dew computing: independence and collaboration. A group of dew computing categories have also been described. These categories may inspire new applications.
