Towards Predictive Replica Placement for Distributed Data Stores in Fog Environments


Mobile clients that consume and produce data are abundant in fog environments. Low latency access to this data can only be achieved by storing it in close physical proximity to the clients. Current data store systems fall short as they do not replicate data based on client movement. We propose an approach to predictive replica placement that autonomously and proactively replicates data close to likely client locations.
