||DIMACS Special Focus on Information Sharing and Dynamic Data Analysis
||Data center networks (DCN) have become the nexus of Cloud services, providing an infrastructure for effective data sharing among different applications and collaborators. DCNs use the innovative paradigm of software-defined networks (SDN) that advocates decoupling the control plane and the data plane of networks. Many DCNs support also network virtualization that separates the traditional Internet service providers into two new roles: infrastructure network providers (InP) and service providers (SP). The role of the SPs is to offer various services using virtual networks that are obtained by leasing resources from InPs. Combining these novel features of SDN and virtualization, DCNs offer the opportunity to better control data sharing and to provision virtual machines (VMs) with unprecedented flexibility. However, this setting raises many new challenges. One major challenge is to optimize the use of physical resources by a careful allocation of VMs to hosts, continuously balancing between the conflicting objectives of high performance and low operational costs. Another main issue is energy consumption that is playing an increasing role due to its costs and environmental impact.
