Due to an explosive growth in services running in different datacenters, there is need for service selection and routing to deliver user requests to the best service instance. In current solutions, it is generally the client that must first select a datacenter to forward the request to before an internal load-balancer of the selected datacenter can select(More)
This paper introduces a new paradigm for service oriented networking being developed in the FUSION project'. Despite recent proposals in the area of information centric networking, a similar treatment of services - where networked software functions, rather than content, are dynamically deployed, replicated and invoked - has received little attention by the(More)
We see a trend to design services as a suite of small service components instead of the typical monolithic nature of classic web services, which led to an increasing amount of long-tail services on the Internet. Deploying instances everywhere to achieve a fast response time results in high costs, especially when these services are used infrequently and(More)
The amount of services located in the network has drastically increased over the last decade which is why more and more datacenters are located at the network edge, closer to the users. In the current Internet it is up to the client to select a destination using a resolution service (Domain Name System, Content Delivery Networks). In the last few years,(More)
Optimal placement of demanding real-time interactive applications in a distributed heterogeneous cloud very quickly results in a complex tradeoff between the application constraints and resource capabilities. This requires very detailed information of the various requirements and capabilities of the applications and available resources. In this paper, we(More)
