A Content Sharing System Using Dynamic Fog Consisting of Peer-to-Peer Terminals and Its Simple Evaluation
Abstract— This paper proposes an efficient content sharing system by forming a Dynamic Fog with multiple Edge terminals that make up a Peer-to-Peer network and logically constructing a Cloud-Fog-Edge hierarchical structure. In general, by placing a Fog server between Cloud and an Edge terminal, redundant traffic between Cloud and Edge nodes can be reduced, and the delay time required for providing contents or transmitting some kind of directions from Cloud can be shortened by shortcuts using Fog. In this research, it is novel that the role of a Fog server is cooperatively played by multiple Edge terminals, instead of a relatively high-performance dedicated Fog server. The proposed system is evaluated by simple computer simulations in order to show its potential effectiveness.
