R2D2: bufferless, switchless data center networks using commodity ethernet hardware

Modern data centers commonly run distributed applications that require low-latency communication, and whose performance is critical to service revenue. If as little as one machine in 10,000 is a latency outlier, around 18% of requests will experience high latency. The sacrifice of latency determinism for bandwidth, however, is not an inevitable one. In our… CONTINUE READING
