Title: Management of bandwidth efficiency and fairness in cloud computing

Abstract: Technologies are generally described to manage bandwidth efficiency and fairness in cloud computing. According to some examples, bottleneck links may be determined in a network connecting communication device pairs. A first bandwidth allocation may be determined of a first subset of the communication device pairs communicating through the bottleneck links. A second bandwidth allocation may be determined of a second subset of the communication device pairs unable to communicate through the bottleneck links. Then, the first bandwidth may be adjusted based on an analysis of the first bandwidth, the second bandwidth, a first weight attribute associated with the first subset and a second weight attribute associated with the second subset.
