Cloud Network: Integration of Cloud Computing and Virtualization With Network
In cloud computing environment (cloud) typically compute, storage and software resources are offered no-demand via IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service) or SaaS (Software as a Service) services. With proper integration of Cloud computing and virtualization with network much richer and differentiated Cloud services can be offered. A network is an integral part of a Cloud connecting various segments (multiple DCs, CSC to CSP, etc.) of a Cloud. But, network can be further integrated into cloud by supporting relevant Cloud features in the network itself.
