Traffic Merging for Energy-Efficient Datacenter Networks

Numerous studies have shown that datacenter networks typically see loads of between 5%-25% but the energy draw of these networks is equal to operating them at maximum load. In this paper, the authors propose a novel way to make these networks more energy proportional - that is, the energy draw scales with the network load. They propose the idea of traffic aggregation, in which low traffic from N links is combined together to create H
