Best Paper Award at IEEE CloudNet 2014

Posted on October 9th, 2014 by Dr Richard Cziva

Our team has received a Best Paper Award at the 3rd IEEE International Conference on Cloud Networking (CloudNet) for the paper "SDN-based Virtual Machine Management for Cloud Data Centers" in the beautiful city of Luxembourgh (Luxembourgh). The authors of the paper are Richard Cziva, David Stapleton, Fung Po Tso and Dimitrios Pezaros. In this work, we presented a converged server-network resource management scheme by exploiting SDN. In particular, we exploited SDN to collect temportal network statistics and initiated Virtual Machine (VM) migrations from the SDN controller to consolidate VMs in a topology-aware way.
