  •  
  • Date of publication (must have been published within the last two years in a peer-reviewed journal):
  • 15 January 2018
  • Does the article have an abstract?  (Yes/No) If it does, copy and paste the abstract in the space below:
  • Advancements in smart devices, wearable gadgets, sensors, and communication paradigm have enabled the vision of smart cities, pervasive healthcare, augmented reality and interactive multimedia, Internet of Every Thing (IoE), and cognitive assistance, to name a few. All of these visions have one thing in common, i.e., delay sensitivity and instant response. Various new technologies designed to work at the edge of the network, such as fog computing, cloudlets, mobile edge computing, and micro data centers have emerged in the near past. We use the name “edge computing” for this set of emerging technologies. Edge computing is a promising paradigm to offer the required computation and storage resources with minimal delays because of “being near” to the users or terminal devices. Edge computing aims to bring cloud resources and services at the edge of the network, as a middle layer between end user and cloud data centers, to offer prompt service response with minimal delay. Two major aims of edge computing can be denoted as: (a) minimize response delay by servicing the users’ request at the network edge instead of servicing it at far located cloud data centers, and (b) minimize downward and upward traffic volumes in the network core. Minimization of network core traffic inherently brings energy efficiency and data cost reductions. Downward network traffic can be minimized by servicing set of users at network edge instead of service provider’s data centers (e.g., multimedia and shared data) Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), and upward traffic can be minimized by processing and filtering raw data (e.g., sensors monitored data) and uploading the processed information to cloud. This survey presents a detailed overview of potentials, trends, and challenges of edge computing. The survey illustrates a list of most significant applications and potentials in the area of edge computing. State of the art literature on edge computing domain is included in the survey to guide readers towards the current trends and future opportunities in the area of edge computing.
  • Who do you think is the specific target audience for this article? (Yes, it’s scholars and professionals, but scholars and professionals with what specific interest and/or field of study?) What clues does the article provide about this target audience?
  • The articles targeted audience is scholars and professionals in the field of data technology. The article talks about future of data centers and cloud computing, how it can help lower the data latency and make it faster way to send and receive data.
  • What type of documentation style did the author use? If you are unfamiliar with the major documentation styles, check the MLA and APA guidelines available from the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL). If the style you see does not match MLA or APA, then list whether the article uses in-text citations with a list of sources at the end, or footnotes.
  • The documentation style used is MLA. The article has a reference page and each reference ends with a period. The references are not written according to the alphabetical order like its used in APA style.
  • Does the introduction to the article contain a “road map” or forecast for the content?  (Yes/No). If not, how does the introduction situate the reader to the main idea in the article.
  • The article uses a forecast for the content. At the end of the Introduction, The author talks about sections and what those sections contain. 
  1. Does the article use section headings? (Yes/No). If the article uses headings, list them in the space below. How do these headings help you understand the content of this article?
  2. The article uses headings: Introduction, edge computing technologies, edge computing: the state of the art, edge computing challenges, conclusions. The headings help me in understanding what the section will talk about. In introductions its basically what it is about, but in the edge computing: the state of the art part it explains every single thing about the edge computing. So it does help in tracking the data and makes it easy if you have to go back and look for something.
  1. Does your article use charts and tables? (Yes/No). If so, what information do they convey to the reader?
  2. The article uses charts and tables to make it easier to understand for the readers and to make comparisons between data to show how it is better than the past approaches. The charts show infrastructures and visual representation of how the edge computing will work.
  1. What research methodology did the author(s) use? At the very least, indicate whether it’s quantitative or qualitative research and explain why.
  2. The author used both methodologies for research because it is using statistics and numbers to make comparison and show the highs and lows of better computing, qualitative research is used in explaining how it work and how the infrastructure will be designed and implemented.
  3. What do you see as the basic research question this article sought to answer? (Note that some articles announce this early in the essay. If you article did this, copy and paste it in the space below. Otherwise, try to infer what the research question was that the research in your article sought to answer).
  4. Edge computing is a promising paradigm to offer the required computation and storage resources with minimal delays because of “being near” to the users or terminal devices. Edge computing aims to bring cloud resources and services at the edge of the network, as a middle layer between end user and cloud data centers, to offer prompt service response with minimal delay. Two major aims of edge computing can be denoted as: (a) minimize response delay by servicing the users’ request at the network edge instead of servicing it at far located cloud data centers, and (b) minimize downward and upward traffic volumes in the network core.
  1. In the space below, summarize the findings the article presents. This is not necessarily a thesis statement, but the findings usually take a stand on what the study found by conducting research to answer the research question.
  2. The article is explaining a future project that is going to help in data transferring, security and speed. The study found out about the edge computing and how this infrastructure is going to be a future of cloud computing and also what problems it is facing to become successful.
  3. Is there a “Discussions” section in your article? If so, what is the gist of that section? If there is no “Discussions” section, leave this question blank.
  1. How does your article conclude? Summarize the conclusion of the article below. Note that this is not the same thing as the findings.
  • The article talked about the upcoming technologies and how they will need a real time response for better results. The edge computing will be the answer to the latency produced by data centers and users. The edge computing will be a third factor that will become a middle man between the data centers and users to lower the upload and download latency.
  • Why did you choose this article for your Discipline Project? What do you see in the findings that you feel would be of interest or relevant to a public audience?
  • I choose this article because of how it is related to my study and also my work. I am working at an amazon data center and I work with cloud computing every day. This article and its findings will help me better explain how the whole infrastructure works and how I can respond to the problems we face at data centers.
  1. What genre of public writing do you feel would be appropriate for translating this article for a public audience? (Refer to the previous work we have done on various genres of public writing in both the Hypothesis exercises and in the lessons about genre).
  2. The trade genre of public writing will be appropriate for translating because it uses printed journals and articles to inform professionals in their field about new developments.
