Special Issue on Cloud Computing

Background
Cloud Computing is a recent trend in information technology and scientific computing that moves computing and data away from desktop and portable PCs into large Data Centers. Cloud computing is based on a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. Cloud Computing opens new perspectives in internetworking technologies, raising new issues in the architecture, design and implementation of existing networks and data centers. The relevant research has just recently gained momentum and the space of potential ideas and solutions is still far from being widely explored.

Scope
This special issue of the IEEE Network Magazine will feature articles that discuss networking aspects of cloud computing. Specifically, it aims at delivering the state-of-the-art research on current cloud computing networking topics, and at promoting the networking discipline by bringing to the attention of the community novel problems that must be investigated. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Data center architecture
    • Server interconnection
    • Routers (switching technology) for data center deployment
    • Centralization of network administration/routing
  • Energy-efficient cloud networking
    • Low energy routing
    • Green data centers
  • Measurement-based network management
    • Traffic engineering
    • Network anomaly detection
    • Usage-based pricing
  • Security issues in clouds
    • Secure routing
    • Security threats and countermeasures
    • Virtual network security
  • Virtual Networking
    • Virtualized network resource management
    • Virtual cloud storage
  • Futuristic topics
    • Interclouds
    • Cloud computing support for mobile users
 
Manuscript Submission
Authors should submit their manuscript electronically in PDF format by email to all the guest editors according to the timetable. Authors are encouraged to register their papers by submitting the paper abstract, the paper title, authors and keywords by the corresponding deadline. Prospective authors must prepare their original submissions in accordance with the IEEE Network guidelines to authors, http://dl.comsoc.org/livepubs/ni/info/authors.html. Articles should not exceed 4500 words, be tutorial in nature, and should be written in a style comprehensible to readers outside the specialty of the article. The title page should include the paper title, authors and keywords. Figures and tables should be limited to a combined total of six. All submissions will be reviewed based on technical merit and relevance.
