Deploying Fog Applications: How Much Does It Cost, By the Way?

Antonio Brogi, Stefano Forti, Ahmad Ibrahim

Abstract

Deploying IoT applications through the Fog in a QoS-, context-, and cost-aware manner is challenging due to the heterogeneity, scale and dynamicity of Fog infrastructures. To decide how to allocate app functionalities over the continuum from the IoT to the Cloud, app administrators need to find a trade-off among QoS, resource consumption and cost. In this paper, we present a novel cost model for estimating the cost of deploying IoT applications to Fog infrastructures. We show how the inclusion of the cost model in the FogTorchP open-source prototype permits to determine eligible deployments of multi-component applications to Fog infrastructures and to rank them according to their QoS-assurance, Fog resource consumption and cost. We run the extended prototype on a motivating scenario, showing how it can support IT experts in choosing the deployments that best suit their desiderata.
