Enabling High Performance Cloud Computing Environments
SESSION: Enabling High Performance Cloud Computing Environments
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Jurrie Van Den Breekel
ABSTRACT: The cloud is the new “killer” service to bring service providers and enterprises into the age of network services capable of infinite scale. As an example, 5,000 servers with many cloud services could feasibly serve one billion users or end devices. The idea of services at this scale is now possible with multi-core processing, virtualization and high speed Ethernet, but even today the mix of implementing these technologies requires careful considerations in public and private infrastructure design.
While cloud computing offers tremendous possibilities, it is critical to understanding the limitations of this framework across key network attributes such as performance, security, availability and scalability. Real-world testing of a cloud computing environment is a key step toward putting any concerns to rest around performance, security and availability.
Spirent will share key findings that are the result of some recent work with the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC) including a close examination of how implementing a cloud approach within a private or private data center affects the firewall, data center bridging, virtualization, and WAN optimization.
