Cloud providers employ sophisticated virtualization techniques and strategies for sharing resources among a high number of largely uncoordinated and mutually untrusted customers. The shared networking environment, in particular, dictates the need for mechanisms to partition network resources among virtual machines. At the same time, the performance of(More)
An accurate and exhaustive knowledge of the Internet topology is essential for a deep understanding of such a complex and ever-evolving ecosystem. In this context, a well-known key challenge is represented by alias resolution, i.e. the process of grouping under a unique identifier the addresses owned by the same network layer device. While several(More)
Cloud computing and Internet of Things (IoT), two very different technologies, are both already part of our life. Their massive adoption and use is expected to increase further, making them important components of the Future Internet. A novel paradigm where Cloud and IoT are merged together is foreseen as disruptive and an enabler of a large number of(More)
In this work, we propose a methodology based on the alias resolution process to demonstrate that the IP level view of the route provided by traceroute may be a poor representation of the real router-level route followed by the traffic. More precisely, we show how the traceroute output can lead one to (i) inaccurately reconstruct the route by overestimating(More)
—The dependence of the industry on cloud-based infrastructures has grown much faster than our understanding of the performance limits and dynamics of these environments. An aspect only marginally analyzed in the past is related to the performance of the intra-cloud network connecting the virtual machines (VMs) deployed in the same data center. The few(More)
The advances in networking technologies and the increase in the need for storage resources have prompted many companies to outsource their storage needs. Cloud-storage providers offer clean and simple file-system interfaces, abstracting away the complexities of direct hardware management. At the same time, however, such services eliminate the direct(More)
