  • Publication number: 20200092255
    Abstract: Described herein are systems, methods, and software to improve distribution of service information in a computing environment. In one implementation, a computing element identifies a modification to a locally maintained service data structure that maintains status information for services of a computing environment. In response to the modification, the computing element may identify a key-value pair and add the key-value pair to a gateway protocol packet. Once added to the packet, the computing element may communicate the packet to a second computing element.

  • Publication number: 20190377592
    Abstract: In a decentralized cloud computing system, a fog resource manager is utilized for management. The fog resource manager identifies nodes of the decentralized cloud computing system, and images a first one of the nodes so as to include a hypervisor. The fog resource manager further provisions one or more virtual machines on the first one of the nodes, and generates a resource pool from an inventory of the nodes. A payload is provisioned by the fog resource manager on the first one of the nodes based on a request from a virtual resource management module.

  • Publication number: 20190320040
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, systems and articles of manufacture to dynamically discover and host services in fog servers are disclosed. An example apparatus includes a service manager to determine that a received service request from an Internet of things (IoT) device is not able to be performed locally at a first fog server; a first interface to transmit the service request to a fog resource manager; and a second interface to transmit instructions to the IoT device to transmit the service request to a second fog server, a response from the fog resource manager including service data related to the second fog server.
