We have proposed the FISSION (Flexible Interconnection of Scalable Systems Integrated using Optical Networks) architecture for data-centers in [1]. The Fission architecture comprises of the creation of sectors that comprise of server systems and switches are backplane wired up using optical buses. These optical buses deploy ultra-dense wavelength division multiplexing (UDWDM). A modified Carrier Ethernet system provides protocol connectivity within the data-center that scales to support beyond… CONTINUE READING
