Cloud computing

In the last few years, our research group has directed significant efforts to advance the state-of-the-art research on optimization methodologies for cloud computing and data center management. In this field, key processes to be optimized include:

In all these processes, optimal decisions may significantly improve several aspects of a cloud computing environment, such as OPEX costs, e.g., energy consumption, CAPEX costs, virtualization performance, resource contention, network congestion, overall reliability, etc.

The team

Brunilde Sansó
Brunilde Sansò is a full professor of telecommunication networks in the department of Electrical Engineering of the Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal. She has more than 25 years of experience in telecommunication network optimisation, reliability, performance and design. She is the director of the LORLAB, a research group dedicated to developing effective methods for the design and performance of communication networks. In the latest years, her group has been particularly interested on Cloud Computing, SDN, the energy efficiency of the Internet and its relationship with network robustness and performance. Professor Sansò has a Ph.D in Applied Mathematics, a master degree in Electrical Engineering in the area of Network Reliability and a Baccalaureat in Electrical Engineering. She has published extensively in the Telecommunication Networks and Operations Research literature and has been a consultant for many telecommunication operators, equipment and software manufacturers, and journalists. Over the years, she has been the recipient of several prizes and distinctions and she has been part of government as well as technical international committees. She is Associate Editor of Telecommunication Networks and co-editor of the books « Performance and Design Methods For the Next Generation Internet » and « Telecommunications Network Planning »

Luca Giovanni Gianoli
received the Bachelor Degree in Telecommunications Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (Italy) in 2008, and the Master Degree in Telecommunications Engineering from Politecnico di Milano in 2010. Under the supervision of Prof. Antonio Capone and Prof. Brunilde Sansò, in 2014 he earned his Electrical Engineering at both Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria (DEIB) of Politecnico di Milano and Département de génie électrique of École Polytechnique de Montreal, where he is currently a PostDoctoral researcher. His research interests include topics related to energy-aware network design and traffic engineering (green networking), cloud computing and robust optimization.
