Dr. Flavio Esposito has been awarded $ 203,815 to study robustness of virtual cloud-computing networks that could be deployed in cases where traditional networks suffer from high congestion, such as at times of crisis or natural disasters. This award is part of a cumulative $950,000 award in collaboration with the University of Missouri-Columbia.

The contribution of this project lays in the design of novel distributed and federated algorithms for the virtual path embedding and computation placement problems, for real-time “visual cloud computing” applications. In particular, we seek solution improvement for constrained path finders schemes, e.g., virtual network embedding or traffic steering, in presence of severe host and link failures, host mobility and network partitioning.
