Technology tandems aren’t very common but occasionally you do find two techs that can’t live without each other. The relationship between operating systems and CPUs is entirely co-dependent because they both need each other.
Another example of that is the simultaneous growth of edge computing, sometimes called fog computing by people trying to be clever, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Due to the design of IoT, it needs edge computing to maximize its potential, and both techs are in their very early stages.
Both edge computing and fog computing are strongly on the rise for the same exact reasons: an IoT data deluge. A report by Hitachi Vanata estimates that connected cars, with their continuous monitoring of all systems, will generate 25GB of data every hour.
