Moving down from the cloud?

In the past few years, cloud computing has been the rage. It involves providing a lot of services from a centralized platform.

This could be almost seen as somewhat akin to how mainframes used to dominate in the early days of computing with their massive centralized computing power.

However, it appears that with the ongoing innovations in the IoT field, a wave of decentralization may take place in the field of computing similar to how PCs came to replace mainframes in popular usage.
