In the current cloud computing environment, the size of the server cluster in the data center is growing in response to the increasing traffic. Due to the use of multiple replicas in the server cluster to provide the same services, effective load balancing as a key technology is very important. In this paper, the authors implement and evaluate an alternative load-balancing architecture using OpenFlow switches connected to a controller, which gains high flexibility without additional equipment and has the potential to be more robust than traditional load balancing approach.
