Abstract
Creating datacenter federations allows balancing workloads accommodating spikes in cloud demand while reducing the extensive energy consumption of datacenters. This allows datacenter operators to reduce cost and increase their revenue from using under-utilized resources. To implement those elastic operations, datacenters need to be connected through a network providing huge capacity and guaranteeing adequate resource availability when it is required. Those features can be covered by the flexgrid...
