Using Proxies to Accelerate Cloud Applications

Free registration required

Executive Summary

A rich cloud ecosystem is unfolding with clouds emerging to provide platforms and services of many shapes and sizes. The authors speculate that future network applications may wish to utilize and synthesize capabilities from multiple clouds. The problem is this may entail significant data communication that derives from the client-server paradigm imposed by most clouds. To address this bottleneck, they propose a cloud proxy network that allows optimized data-centric operations to be performed at strategic network locations. They show the potential of this architecture for accelerating cloud applications.
