When submitting please select "SI:CCNS" in Editorial Manager as article type


Cloud computing, networking, and their related service management including grid computing (as appropriate) have recently emerged out of marketing

hype to viable computing/networking tools for reducing infrastructure deployment and service management costs without sacrificing the quality of

service/experience (QoS/E).


Although the virtualization of computing and networking resources, and their self-organizing interconnection is at the heart of it, the

methods/mechanisms/tools that are used to expose (visualization) resources and their utilization (the application programming interfaces of APIs) for

developing anything (*) as a service (*aaS) are still ad-hoc and/or proprietary in nature. Security, privacy, and multi-tenancy support requirements

add another dimension to the already complex set of Cloud --computing and networking-- management problems.


This JNSM SI on CCNS management will include invited and referee-recommended papers on the following topics:


- Cloud Applications and Services

--> Any computing, data-storing, and networking as a service

- API for enabling Cloud-based Services

--> Public, Private, and Hybrid (toolkit approach) APIs

- Virtualization (of any and all resources) and Hosting

--> Virtualization of Clients/Desktop, Applications, Services, and Databases

--> Distributed Intra- and Inter-Domain Storage/FileSystems/Database

--> Distributed Intra- and Inter-Domain Scheduling of resources

--> Resources Mobility and Multi-tenancy

- Protocols and Interoperability

--> Adaptive Protocols for Generic Cloud Services

--> Inter-Domain Service-Specific Adaptive Protocols

- Private, Public, Community, Hybrid Clouds

--> Addressability, Networking Extensions, Service Quality Agreement

- Cloud Service Logging and Monitoring

--> Including Auditing and Verification

- Soft and Hard Privacy and Security for Cloud-based Services

--> Process, Practice and Mechanisms

- Risk, Resiliency, and SLA (RRS) of Services in Clouds

--> Risk-tolerance, MMTF, MMTR, etc. for Components and Apps/Services (End-to-End)

- Cloud Service and Infrastructure Management

--> Including Visualization, Automation, Debugging and Diagnosis

- Reports from CCNS management Experiments and Filed Deployments

--> University, Consortia, Industry/ Field Trials, etc.

- Mobility Management in Cloud Computing

--> Cloud service hosting mobility and service migration

--> Elastic computing using mobile codes

- Policy management in Cloud computing

--> Regulations and export control of using Cloud computing
