Diamond: An Improved Fat-tree Architecture for Large-scale Data Centers

  title={Diamond: An Improved Fat-tree Architecture for Large-scale Data Centers},
  author={Yantao Sun and Jing Cheng and Qiang Liu and Weiwei Fang},
With the widespread deployment of cloud services, data center networks are developing toward large-scale, multipath networks. To support the new trend, some novel network architectures have been proposed, and Fat-tree is one of the most promising architecture and gets a lot of attention because it has good performance on aggregate bandwidth with a simple topology. This paper presents Diamond, an improved Fat-tree architecture for large-scale data centers. Diamond replaces all the aggregation… CONTINUE READING
