Dr. Quentin Jacquemart, from CNRS, presented a poster about PrEstoCloud result in the ACM Internet Measurement Conference on 1-3 November in London, UK. The work presented allows to measure available bandwidth between different data centers, using a much cheaper approach than the traditional iperf tool. Indeed, iperf relies on bulk transfers, which can prove costly in pay-as-you-go IaaSs. The proposed approach is based on the Pathload tool, and runned controlled experiments with Mininet. The observed results demonstrate that Pathload results were often similar to those of iperf, but with more time variability.
