NetDEO: Automating Network Design, Evolution, and Optimization

With the ever-increasing number and complexity of applications deployed in data centers, the underlying network infrastructure can no longer sustain such a trend and exhibits several problems, such as resource fragmentation and low bisection bandwidth. In pursuit of a real-world applicable Data Center Network (DCN) optimization approach that continuously maintains balanced network performance with high cost effectiveness, the authors design a topology independent resource allocation and optimization approach, NetDEO. Based on a swarm intelligence optimization model, NetDEO improves the scalability of the DCN by relocating Virtual Machines (VMs) and matching resource demand and availability.
