Emulated networks for clouds in BonFIRE

Abstract

Although cloud systems mainly focus on management solutions for computing resources, implications from the networks interconnecting these resources have to be taken into account as well. The Virtual Wall emulation testbed in BonFIRE allows for large-scale experiments to test the influence of various networking parameters on cloud-based solutions, including topology, link delay, bandwidth, packet loss and background traffic.
