A conceptual-driven survey on future internet requirements, technologies, and challenges

Antonio Marcos Alberti
2013 Journal of the Brazilian Computer Society  
The panorama shows a wide diversity of pre-requirements and arguments, some very specific and superficial, others more general and deep.  ...  Nowadays, research initiatives to redesign the Internet are popping up around the world. Each of these projects has a particular focus and its own set of design requirements and key technologies.  ...  Acknowledgments The author thanks INATEL for the research support.  ...

A Resource Description Language with Vagueness Support for Multi-Provider Cloud Networks

Gregor Schaffrath, Stefan Schmid, Ishan Vaishnavi, Ashiq Khan, Anja Feldmann
2012 2012 21st International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks (ICCCN)  
The concept of CloudNets, virtual networks connecting cloud resources, has recently attracted much interest from both academic as well as business sides.  ...  CloudNets can realize the vision of affordable customized infrastructures. In particular, such networks are expected to be offered even in federated environments with multiple providers.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to thank Johannes Grassler for many discussions and for incorporating FleRD in the prototype.  ...

Service level agreement mediation, negotiation and evaluation for cloud services in intercloud environments

Alexander Stanik, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Odej Kao
Based on these results, a set of concepts and approaches for agreement and service mediation are developed and experimentally evaluated.  ...  The management of today's service level agreements on the cloud market is often nontransparent and inefficient for the customer and the provider.  ...  Thus, the platform enables both the access to infrastructure and the access to platform services, in order to develop cloud-based applications.  ...
