Increasing complexity in and interconnectivity between technologies and systems (e.g., cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), fog and edge computing) can complicate data processing and security requirements. Thus, in this paper we review existing literature survey articles focusing on cloud, fog and edge computing platforms and infrastructures. We then present the result of a systematic survey of existing literature surveys. Our research uses the PRISMA methodology and grounded theory to guide the review process, along with grounded theory for the classification of identified issues. The issues together with research trends and future research recommendations are then discussed, with the objective of informing future research agenda.
