Todays data centers may contain tens of thousands of computers with progressively more specialized and expensive equipments. Thus, the research community has proposed various interconnect topologies e.g FatTree, Dcell and Bcube. However, these architectures are too complex and very expensive to construct and they suffer from high average path length (APL) and latency. Motivated by these challenges, we propose a new data center architecture called VacoNet that combines the advantages of existing… CONTINUE READING
