The joint management of IT and network resources is a key aspect for dynamic inter-data center interconnection networks designed to work according to the cloud computing paradigm. Such a scenario calls for the any-cast routing of service requests to find a data channel that best suits both connectivity and IT resource requirements. This paper presents different network resource allocation and release policies across an inter-data center interconnection network aimed at a balanced accommodation of network resources to improve performance.
