Cloud computing is entering our lives and changing the way people consume information dramatically. Clouds transform IT infrastructures with an emphasis on making them flexible, affordable, and capable of serving millions of users, satisfying their computing or storage demands. The design of early cloud computing systems has evolved from, and was dominated by, the concepts of cluster and grid computing. Currently, as the concepts of the cloud become advanced and mature, cloud networking and communication processes begin playing a central role. Cloud Networking has emerged as a promising direction for cost-efficient and reliable service delivery across data communication networks. The dynamic location of service facilities and the virtualization of hardware and software elements are stressing the communication network and protocols, especially when datacenters are interconnected through the Internet.

The optimization of cloud networking can significantly increase system performance, reducing energy consumption and save costs not only inside individual data centers, but also globally, on the Internet scale. Developing novel network architectures would facilitate adoption of modular container-based data centers. Advancements in internetworking become key enabler for building hybrid clouds and federations of clouds. Service provisioning over heterogeneous connections and wireless links can enhance computational capacity and enrich application experience of mobile users. Efficient resource management and scheduling in data centers and cloud infrastructures is open research challenge that has to be addressed and novel architectures, telecommunication technologies, and protocols must be developed to ensure efficiency of future cloud computing systems.

- Data Center Network Management, Reliability, Optimization
