Virtual machines are gaining a growing importance in modern business IT infrastructure. They facilitate multiple operating system instances on one physical host, which provides more efficient use of the computing power of the physical host but increases the amount of network traffic as well. To...
IP address lookup is an important processing function of Internet routers. The challenge lies in finding the longest prefix that matches the packet’s destination address. One of the issues concerning IP address lookups is the average lookup time. In previous works, caching was shown to be an...
A fair and optimal mechanism is required for allocating bandwidth to virtual machine migration in a WAN environment. In this thesis, we propose a dynamic resource allocation algorithm running in either centralized or distributed environments. The centralized version of our algorithm collects...
Virtualization technology has attracted considerable interest. It allows several virtual machines to run concurrently inside a physical host, which brings multiple advantages. One of the most useful features is called live migration, during which a virtual machine can be migrated over network...
In this thesis, we present Structured Message Transport (SMT). SMT is a transport protocol coordinator designed to alleviate the head-of-line blocking problem of existing transport layer protocols including the most widely used, transmission control protocol (TCP). SMT uses explicit dependency...
