The “Research on Cloud Networking in Brazil and Europe: the NECOS and ATMOSPHERE projects” workshop, organized by ATMOSPHERE and NECOS projects, is taking place during the IEEE International Conference on Cloud Networking (IEEE CloudNet 2019), held in Coimbra (Portugal), from the 4th and 6th November 2019.
IEEE CloudNet 2019 is part of the IEEE Cloud Computing Initiative and builds on a successful set of previous editions, since 2012. The Conference topics include (but are not limited to) Cloud network and resource management, Cloud network and virtualization, Cloud network architecture and Cloud network security and privacy.
ATMOSPHERE & NECOS workshop has been selected as one of the workshops on the IEEE CloudNet agenda, a sign that the subject addressed are considered as a hot topic for the cloud computing landscape.
The 2-hour session will present current research challenges and opportunities in cloud networking and how they are addressed by research teams in Brazil and Europe.
What are the technical issues from industrial and legislation landscapes? How cloud technology can provide value to Brazilian and European companies and researchers? How cloud and multi-cloud technologies make easier for both researchers and companies to cooperate, share resources and data? All these topics will be discussed in ATMOSPHERE and NECOS session.
Giacomo Verticale (Politecnico di Milano, Italy) from ATMOSPHERE and Luis Contreras (Telefonica, Spain) from NECOS, represent academia and industry respectively. Having an academic and industry speaker provides a well balanced view, since cloud networking technologies developed in the projects are of interest to both worlds. The two project complement each other and provide different points of view and usage scenarios.
Giacomo’s presentation “Software Defined Networking in the ATMOSPHERE project” will demonstrate how cloud technologies provide a formidable tool to scientists that want to cooperate with other scientists and share data, resources, and knowledge. Luis presentation, entitled “Networking the cloud, cloudifying the network”, will discuss how cloud can find its way in operator networks.
Both speakers will discuss the technical challenges that still need to be addressed by network engineers and researchers both from the industry and the academia.
