Load Balancing for data-center networks1.5 ECTS credits
The primary focus of the course is on recent developments that apply the concept of programmable data planes to the load-balancing problem. Data Center networks and their implications for the routing and load-balancing approaches are treated. Several load balancing strategies are studied in more detail such as Equal Cost Multipath Routing (ECMP), Conga and Hula. Finally, future usecases such as load balancing in data centre networks with cross-layer information are treated.
