Edge Computing: Transforming IoT

Introduction to Edge Computing and IoT Edge computing refers to the practice of processing data near the edge of the network, where the data is generated, rather than relying solely on centralized data-processing warehouses or cloud-based systems. This approach contrasts with traditional cloud computing, where data is transmitted to centralized data centers for processing and analysis. The Internet of Things (IoT) consists of a network of interconnected devices, sensors, and systems that communicate and exchange data to perform various tasks and provide valuable insights. IoT devices are deployed across various sectors, including smart homes, industrial automation, healthcare, transportation, and more. Impact of Edge Computing on IoT Improved Response Times One of the primary benefits of edge computing in IoT is the significant improvement in response times. By processing data closer to the source, edge computing reduces latency, which is the time it takes for data to travel from the

Managing Time Varying Data in RDBMS

In the realm of database management, there exists a category of data that is inherently dynamic and time sensitive. This type of data evolves over time, capturing changes, updates, and historical snapshots. Managing such time-varying data presents unique challenges and requires specialized techniques to ensure accurate storage, retrieval, and analysis. This is where the concept of temporal databases comes into play. Temporal databases are designed to handle time-varying data within the framework of Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS). They enable the storage and manipulation of data while maintaining temporal aspects such as valid time (the time period during which data is considered valid) and transaction time (the time at which data is recorded or modified). There are several key components involved in managing time-varying data within an RDBMS: Temporal Data Model : Temporal databases typically extend the traditional relational data model to incorporate temporal dimension
