Public clouds have become a popular platform for building Internet-scale applications. Using virtualization, public cloud services grant customers full control of guest operating systems and applications, while service providers still retain the management of their host infrastructure. Because applications built with public clouds are often highly sensitive to response time, infrastructure builders strive to reduce the latency of their data center's internal network. However, most existing… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • Experimental and simulation results show that our solution can reduce median latency of small flows by 40%, with improvements in the tail of almost 90%, while reducing throughput of large flows by less than 3%.
