This article demonstrates a powerful QoS mechanism available with the Linux® operating system that can help cloud administrators to effectively divide the total network bandwidth available on a centralized Linux server, hosting cloud applications among tenant client systems such as IBM® AIX®, Microsoft® Windows®, and Linux.
