ITC Special Interest Group (SIG) in Cloud Networking
The ever-increasing growth of the cloud computing architectures and software-defined networks Internet is raising a lot of issues and concerns mainly related to inter-domain routing, virtual switches and tunneling protocols creating an increasing concern on the availability and suitability of today’s Internet architecture. These issues are mostly due to the obsolete assumption present in the design of networking protocols related to the consideration that computing and networking infrastructures were dedicated and thus no sharing of resources across different administrative domains were consider.
The novel techniques for sharing computational resources based on cloud computing technologies are very promising as an efficient way of reducing capital and operational costs in IT infrastructures. However, these novel techniques also required the reconsideration and deep study of all the existing protocols in order to enable an effective sharing of resources between different administrative domains.
In the framework of ITC Special Interest Groups activities, the SIG in Cloud Networking has been created in 2012, aiming at gathering and disseminating activities about the Cloud Computing and Networking paradigm.
