2.) ICW-TELKOMNIKA 2019 – Reward for Ridha

Ridha Muldina Negara cheerfully expressed her gratitude of achieving the best paper award in ICW-TELKOMNIKA 2019. Her paper was titled Performance Analysis of Multi Services on Container Docker, LXC and LXD.

“I am very happy and proud that my paper is recognized as one of the best,” said the Indonesian researcher.

She admitted that initially her paper just aimed at contributing the related research.

“I didn’t expect much,” she said. “I was interested to join ICW-TELKOMNIKA because the journal is scored Q2, it would be a pride if my paper was accepted.”

“My paper discussed the development of virtualization technology which is currently very popular in the IT industry as it has many advantages such as efficiency, effectiveness and flexibility. Technology on the core network side of telecommunications operators is very important to be developed in order to be able to keep pace with technological developments on the side of software and platforms. Currently containerization technology as an alternative in virtualization continues to develop. The flexibility and effectiveness offered by containerization has now been integrated with Cloud Computing, one of which is the implementation of the Magnum project in Open Stack as one solution for large and scalable cloud. Containers come in many names, among which the most widely adapted by enterprises and the most mentioned are Doker, LXC, and LXD,” said the lectured of Telkom University.
