Cloud communications and networking become more and more important fostered by proliferation of cloud offerings. Data centers are becoming containers of virtual provider networks, whose embedding can be optimized as a function of cost, customer demands, energy savings (“Follow-the-Sun” concept), dynamic scaling, Quality-of-Service (QoS) and Quality-of-Experience (QoE). In the access, network offloading protocols and advanced service migration and caching techniques are being leveraged to offload cellular provider networks and improve user QoE (“Follow-Me Cloud” concept). Efficient resource management in data center and cloud networks is an open research challenge, which is particularly important with the increasing reliance on bandwidth-demanding Virtual Machine (VM) migrations for resource consolidation and energy management across geographically distributed data centers.
