Routing-as-a-Service (RaaS): A Framework for Tenant-Directed Route Control in Data Center

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In a multi-tenant data center environment, the current paradigm for route control customization involves a labor intensive ticketing process, in which tenants submit route control requests to the landlord. This results in a tight-coupling between tenants and landlord, extensive human resource deployment, and long ticket resolution time. This paper proposes Routing-as-a-Service (RaaS), a framework for tenant-directed route control in data centers. The authors show that RaaS-based implementation provides a route control platform for multiple tenants to perform route control independently with little administrative involvement, and for the landlord to set the overall network policies.
