Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a technique for data transmission that works on wide area networks (WAN), it is used by most service providers to improve the functionality of the ISPs networks, ISPs and suppliers of Internet services use this technique to take advantage of their ability to engineering data traffic in the network traffic. Guaranteed QoS in an MPLS network requires backup paths to be preset in the network. As the world is moving to virtualization techniques Cloud computing has become an important feature for service providers. Windows Server 2012 R2 will be our tool to provide customers with the services. A business paradigm with flexible and powerful computational architecture will be shown to offer universal services to users via Internet or local network. Three main services provided by the cloud are (IaaS, SaaS and PaaS).
