Low-latency Datacenter Networks
Friday, November 2nd, 1:30 PM, St. Mary’S Hall 326
Abstract: Datacenters host a wide range of today’s low-latency applications. To meet their strict latency requirements at scale, datacenter networks are designed as topologies that can provide a large number of parallel paths between each pair of hosts. The recent trend towards simple datacenter network fabric strips most network functionality, including load balancing among these paths, out of the network core and pushes it to the edge.
