About the Talk

A successful Cloud computing provider depends on a variety of fast, cost-effective, and reliable networks. This talk explains the requirements for cloud networks, and how a cloud provider such as Google creates virtual networks, and the underlying data-center and wide-area networks that support these virtual networks. I'll discuss several research projects related to making these networks even better.
