Yuefeng and Larissa

Title: Two Stories about Cloud Networking at Google

Presenter: Jeff Mogul

Abstract: Cloud computing offers the promise not only of lower costs for
computing and storage, but also an easier operational model, much higher
reliability, and features that are not feasible to provide at smaller
scales.  In the first half of the talk, I will describe how Google is
building a Cloud infrastructure to support performance, availability, and
novel features, with a particular emphasis on network technology.  In the
second half, I will present a speculative project that (with Ramana
Kompella) we are just starting, to measure how varying the network latency
provided within a Cloud data center affects the performance of Cloud
