OpenFlow is popular in software-defined networks. To improve performance, we implemented an OpenFlow v1.1 hardware forwarding plane based on network processors, proposing a performance model that helps improve mapping.
The rapid uptake of cloud computing services creates numerous new security issues. This article identifies and classifies the main security concerns and solutions in cloud computing, giving an overview of the current status of security in this emerging technology.
A new method, BART (Bandwidth Available in Real-Time), estimates the end-to-end bandwidth available over a network path. The method, already implemented as a tool, relies on self-induced congestion and Kalman filtering. It repeatedly samples the available bandwidth of the network path with sequences of probe packet trains.
In this paper we analyze how cloud computing and NetInf can be combined to make cloud computing infrastructures easier to manage, and potentially enable deployment in smaller and more dynamic networking environments. NetInf should be seen as an enhancement to cloud computing infrastructure rather than a change to the technology as such.
The ability to create data is no longer limited by where people are, or what they are doing. Now, anyone with a connected device can create data, store it and share it within a few moments. To monetize big data a new approach to network architecture is needed.
