Just as we became familiar with Cloud computing and the ubiquity of open
source, a new model has emerged, an extension of the cloud to the edge of the network, some call it Fog computing, or the Internet of Things. This talk describes how the compute model is changing as the new generation of devices stretched what we previously knew as Cloud compute. What are the implications in network protocols, network functions virtualization, power and compute resources in these devices as well as the Cloud, or the Fog, and how will the Open Source projects we have become so familiar with in the Cloud today, handle this new scale of distributed compute and scalability tomorrow.
