TALK: Two Stories about Cloud Networking at Google
Abstract: Cloud computing offers the promise not only of lower costs for computing and storage, but also an easier operational model, much higher reliability, and features that are not feasible to provide at smaller scales. In the first half of the talk, I will describe how Google is building a Cloud infrastructure to support performance, availability, and novel features, with a particular emphasis on network technology. In the second half, I will present a speculative project that (with Ramana Kompella) we are just starting, to measure how varying the network latency provided within a Cloud data center affects the performance of Cloud applications.
Jeff Mogul works on fast, cheap, reliable, and flexible networking infrastructure for Google, currently focusing on network management at Google's scale. Until 2013, he was Fellow at HP Labs, doing research primarily on computer networks and operating systems issues for enterprise and cloud computer systems; previously, he worked at the DEC/Compaq Western Research Lab. He received his PhD from Stanford in 1986, an MS from Stanford in 1980, and an SB from MIT in 1979. He is an ACM Fellow. Jeff is the author or co-author of several Internet Standards; he contributed extensively to the HTTP/1.1 specification. He has been the chair or co-chair of a variety of conferences and workshops, including SIGCOMM, OSDI, NSDI, USENIX, HotOS, and ANCS.
