FIA 2014

The SmartenIT initiated and finally co-organized session on “Cloud Federations and SDN/NFV: The Highways toward Improved QoE, Cost, and Energy Efficiency” at FIA 2014 in Athens has seen on March 19, 2014 more than 75 attendees in the audience. The short panelists’ statements resulted in an interesting panel afterwards. Burkhard Stiller, SmartenIT’s coordinator, represented the STREP SmartenIT as well the NoE FLAMINGO during the panel on traffic management impacts for SDN, accounting, regulatory, and privacy-related facets, and possible technological alternatives to develop and support cost- and energy-efficient and QoE-aware cloud federations.
