Title: Challenges of Resource Allocation in Network Virtualization
Abstract: Network virtualization technology creates multiple tenants on the same physical infrastructure in a cost-effective and dynamic manner. It plays a key role in the cloud computing, which provides resources and services to users through the Internet. An infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider allocates virtual machines in physical machines to customers to meet their requests. The availability of cloud providers is increasingly concerned. There are several failures across the physical machines in cloud providers over the past few years, even for some high-profile cloud providers. This talk addresses challenges of resource allocation in network virtualization, including a probabilistic protection model, a prototype system to implement the model, and several computing and networking aspects.
