CloudMirror: Application-Aware Bandwidth Reservations in the Cloud

Cloud computing providers today do not offer guarantees for the network bandwidth available in the cloud, preventing tenants from running their applications predictably. To provide guarantees, several recent research proposals offer tenants a virtual cluster abstraction, emulating physical networks. Whereas offering dedicated virtual network abstractions is a significant step in the right direction, in this paper, the authors argue that the abstractions exposed to tenants should aim to model tenant application structures rather than aiming to mimic physical network topologies.
