Play Cloud Faster: Microsoft Research at TechFest 2010
To make cloud computing work, we must make applications run substantially faster, both over the Internet and within data centers. Microsoft Researchs measurements of real applications show that today's protocols fall short, leading to slow page-load times across the Internet and congestion collapses inside the data center. Microsoft Research developed a new suite of architectures and protocols that boost performance and the robustness of communications to overcome these problems. The results are backed by real measurements and a new theory describing protocol dynamics that enables us to remedy fundamental problems in the Transmission Control Protocol.
