These days, various academic and industrial institutions are sharing the computing resources of cloud data centers. For the sake of security, data center networks need to be separated by institution or department. One conventional approach is using tag-based VLAN standardized in IEEE 802.1Q. However, this approach cannot accommodate scalable networks because of a limitation on the number of VLAN IDs. To address this problem, we propose HostVLAN, a novel multi-tenant technique for scalable… CONTINUE READING
