Cloud computing is entering our lives and changing the way people consume
information dramatically. Clouds transform IT infrastructures with an
emphasis on making them flexible, affordable, and capable of serving
millions of users, satisfying their computing or storage demands. The design
of early cloud computing systems has evolved from, and was dominated by, the
concepts of cluster and grid computing. Currently, as the concepts of the
cloud become advanced and mature, cloud networking and communication
processes begin playing a central role. Cloud Networking has emerged as a
promising direction for cost-efficient and reliable service delivery across
data communication networks. The dynamic location of service facilities and
the virtualization of hardware and software elements are stressing the
communication network and protocols, especially when datacenters are
interconnected through the Internet.


The optimization of cloud networking can significantly increase system
performance, reducing energy consumption and save costs not only inside
individual data centers, but also globally, on the Internet scale.
Developing novel network architectures would facilitate adoption of modular
container-based data centers. Advancements in internetworking become key
enabler for building hybrid clouds and federations of clouds. Service
provisioning over heterogeneous connections and wireless links can enhance
computational capacity and enrich application experience of mobile users.
Efficient resource management and scheduling in data centers and cloud
infrastructures is open research challenge that has to be addressed and
novel architectures, telecommunication technologies, and protocols must be
developed to ensure efficiency of future cloud computing systems.
