abstract: Network virtualization overcomes the ossification of today’s Internet architecture, and enables new services. Stefan Schmid will present the CloudNet architecture developed at Telekom Innovation Laboratories, which connects distributed cloud resources with virtual networking. This architecture supports multiple economical roles, from service and content providers to physical infrastructure providers. It also comprises an optimized pipeline which includes service specification, automatic translation into formal algorithms and solutions, signaling and allocating the corresponding resource in the network.
The talk will then address how to efficiently decide which requests to accept and embed, and how to migrate CloudNets. Schmid will describe online algorithms for this problem and sketch an analysis. Following this segment, a new formal model will be introduced with analytical results to study the CloudNet in terms of security threat for ISPs.
