High-performance distributed computing systems were founded on Grid computing paradigm while scalable distributed computing systems evolved through Cloud and now Fog computing paradigm. However, following the increasing users’ needs, new research and business models and paradigms, a new computing platforms emerged in order to fulfill their requirements. In the existing distributed computing hierarchy, the Dew computing is positioned as a ground level for Cloud and Fog computing paradigms. Vertical complementary hierarchical division from Cloud to Dew Computing meet the needs of high- and low-end computing demands in everyday life lowering the cost and improve the performance specially in Internet of Things (IoT) and Internet of Everything (IoE) generally in Smart Environments.
