Role of Networking in the age of Cloud Computing (Part 1 of 2)

Role of Networking in the age of Cloud Computing
#Role of Networking in the age of Cloud Computing:
Networkings

Data Center (DC)-based services are emerging as relevant source of network capacity demand for service providers and telecom operators. Cloud computing services, Content Distribution Networks (CDNs), and, generally, th
e networked applications have a huge impact on the telecom operator infrastructure.

Cloud computing paradigm provides a new model for service delivery where computing resources can be provided on-demand across the network. This elasticity permits the sharing of resources among users, thus reducing costs and maximizing utilization, while posing a challenge towards an efficient cloud-aware network.

The computing resources can be provided on-demand depending on the user requests. Such resources can be allocated on distinct servers into a data center, or through data centers distributed in the network. Under this new model, the users access their assigned resources, as well as the applications and services using them, through telecom operator networks.

Tradition telecom networks

Traditional telecom networks have been built on the concept of totally managed services, with an end-to-end approach, where the telco operator is in charge, not only, of providing the necessary connectivity to the end user and the final service itself, but also of providing total control of the service provision, including tasks such as subscription management, billing, network operation and troubleshooting, quality of service guarantee, customer care, etc.

Such approach mandates a tight control of the service path, and a comprehensive understanding of the service and its implications. The telco operator offers those services to its customers, which merely consume them (even, in some cases, composing some of them) in a controlled manner, within the limits provided by the telco operator. These services can be seen as building blocks, which at the same time are supported by network building blocks, both at transport and control level, monolithically. The telco services are typically provided by centralized nodes located deep in the network.

These service nodes are under the solely control of the network operator. Such controlled environment tends to remain stable where the innovation in technology and services is gradual and modulated by the network operator.

However, during the last decades, the technology fundamentals of the computer networking have been influencing the telecom networks, mainly due to the hegemony of the Internet Protocol (IP), which has been emerged as the technology substrate for every kind of service, also for the traditional services offered by telco operators.

The best 5 differences of AWS EMR and Hadoop

With Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) you can analyze and process vast amounts of data. It does this by distributing the computational work across a cluster of virtual servers running in the Amazon cloud. The cluster is managed using an open-source framework called Hadoop.

Amazon EMR has made enhancements to Hadoop and other open-source applications to work seamlessly with AWS. For example, Hadoop clusters running on Amazon EMR use EC2 instances as virtual Linux servers for the master and slave nodes, Amazon S3 for bulk storage of input and output data, and CloudWatch to monitor cluster performance and raise alarms.

You can also move data into and out of DynamoDB using Amazon EMR and Hive. All of this is orchestrated by Amazon EMR control software that launches and manages the Hadoop cluster. This process is called an Amazon EMR cluster.

5 Things About AWS EC2 You Need to Focus!

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) - is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.
Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction.

The basic functions of EC2... 
It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment.Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change.Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and isolate themselves from common failure scenarios. 
Key Points for Interviews:
EC2 is the basic fundamental block around which the AWS are structured.EC2 provides remote ope…
