Abstract

Cloud computing is one of the fascinating advancements in the computing technology. With its fashionable features, cloud deployment is well spread in a wide range of applications. Managing the cloud environment is a complex process because of the virtual nature of the cloud. Cloud management is different from the conventional network management in many aspects. This paper summarizes the functionalities and the importance of network management and reveals the effect of cloud computing over the conventional network management. The five functional areas defined by ISO for network management are mainly concentrated: fault, configuration, accounting, performance and security. Some of the issues faced by cloud computing and their effect in cloud performance have been discussed. Some principles for the network management to support cloud computing and to solve the issues of cloud computing are also suggested. As an important outcome of this academic work, the effects and impacts of cloud computing over network management policies have been delivered to a reasonable depth.
