Cloud computing and Internet of Things (IoT) are two very different technologies that are both already part of our life. Their adoption and use is expected to be more and more pervasive, making them important components of the Future Internet. A novel paradigm where Cloud and IoT are merged together is foreseen as disruptive and as an enabler of a large(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)
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)
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)
Nowadays, more and more the industry and market depend on cloud-based infrastructures for delivering IT services. To this aim cloud-based infrastructures are changing continuously, increasing their complexity especially for the management of cloud resources. Control and management of resources (e.g., virtual machines, VMs) are of paramount importance to(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)
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)
Public-cloud providers do not disclose quantitative information about the performance of their inter-datacenter networks in spite of their importance and of the growing interest they are attracting. In this paper we propose an analysis of the inter-datacenter network of the two leading providers— Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure—only leveraging(More)
