Researchers at Bavaria, Germany's University of Wurzburg, working as part of the SEcure Networks for a DATa center cloud in Europe (SENDATE) consortium, are developing secure and efficient networks for the Internet of the future.
"If we want data centers to continue operating in a secure, flexible, reliable, and instantaneous manner, telecommunication networks and [information technology] will have to be consolidated," says Wurzburg professor Phuoc Tran-Gia.
In addition, Tran-Gia says Internet researchers must decentralize computing and storage capacities and bring them closer to end-users.
The SENDATE consortium aims to develop a network architecture and technologies for secure and flexible distributed computing centers. "Innovative technologies and approaches such as the virtualization of network functions [NFV] combined with software-defined networking [SDN] establish the basis for this," Tran-Gia says.
The project, which is scheduled to run until February 2019, has a research budget of about $82 million.
The researchers also are investigating the development, operation, and optimization of virtual network functions and their positioning in distributed data centers.
