  title={Optical Networks for Grid and Cloud Computing Applications},
  author={Chris Develder and Marc De Leenheer and Bart Dhoedt and Mario Pickavet and Didier Colle and Filip De Turck and Piet Demeester},
  journal={Proceedings of the IEEE},
The evolution toward grid and cloud computing as observed for over a decennium illustrates the crucial role played by (optical) networks in supporting today's applications. In this paper, we start from an overview of the challenging applications in both academic (further referred to as scientific), enterprise (business) and nonprofessional user (consumer) domains. They pose novel challenges, calling for efficient interworking of IT resources, for both processing and storage, as well as the… CONTINUE READING
