With the rise of the internet and the progress of information technologies, the data processing requirements have been increased exponentially. Moreover, computer systems have also been evolved to fulfill this requirements resulting in more complex systems. Recent trends aim to improve computing performance by incorporating different types of computing devices such as GPUs, FPGAs and CPU architectures which are specialized for accelerating different type of algorithms as well as reducing the energy consumption. With the rise of Cloud and Fog computing, these devices can be distributed geographically and connected through the internet by means of different types of networks.
