Networking and Cloud Computing Lab

The Lab hosts activities related to Networking and Cloud Computing. As far as networking is concerned, these activities involve design, implementation and evaluation and prototyping of: network protocols – from the MAC to the application layer; network algorithms, such as resource allocation, scheduling, access control; network services and software; tools for networks analysis and performance evaluation. As far as Cloud Computing is concerned, the activities involve the design, implementation and evaluation of fast and flexible networking Application Programming Interfaces and I/O datapaths for both virtual and real NICs and switches.
