Cloud computing is generally believed to the most gifted technological revolution in computing and it will soon become an industry standard. It is believed that cloud will replace the traditional office setup. However a big question mark exists over the network performance when the cloud traffic explodes. We call it "explosion" as in future we know that various cloud services replacing desktop computing will be accessed via cloud and the traffic increases exponentially. This journal aims at

Our study concentrates on, that despite of offering better round-trip times and throughputs, cloud appears to consistently lose large amounts of the data that it is required to send to the clients. In this journal, we give a concise survey on the research efforts in this area. Our survey findings show that the networking research community has converged to the common understanding that a measurement infrastructure is insufficient for the optimal operation and future growth of the cloud. Despite many proposals on building an network measurement infrastructure from the research community, we believe that it will not be in the near future for such an infrastructure to be fully deployed and operational, due to both the scale and the complexity of the network. We also suggest a set of technologies to identify and manage cloud traffic using IP header DS field, QoS protocols, MPLS/IP Header Compression, Use of high speed edge routers and cloud traffic flow measurement. In the solution DS Field of IP header will be used to recognize the cloud traffic separately, QOS protocols provide the cloud traffic, the type of QOS it requires by allocating resources and marking cloud traffic identification. Further the MPLS/IP Header Compression is performed so that the traffic can pass through the existing network efficiently and speedily. The solution also [...]
