Πλεονεκτήματα του πρωτοκόλλου διαδικτύου IPv6 στο υπολογιστικό νέφος
Advantages of IPv6 in cloud computing
The purpose of this postgraduate thesis is to highlight the growing trend of users who have access to the internet world wide, as well as the need to exchange all sorts of information wherever they might be and from any computing device, whether it is a fixed computer or a "smart" mobile device. This would certainly not be feasible without the development and continuous advancements of cloud-computing. The ever increasing demands of users are co-ordinated with the same trend for development as the one seen in cloud-computing network architectures. This paper highlights the most important requirements that require the use of the new IPv6 protocol and reveal the inability of IPv4 to respond to modern day data. Finally, after the structure and the operation of these two protocols as well as the accompanying mechanisms have been presented, conclusions are drawn on data security and user mobility within networks used by cloud computing.
