Network architectures and energy efficiency for high performance data centers

Abstract : The increasing trend to migrate applications, computation and storage into more robust systems leads to the emergence of mega data centers hosting tens of thousands of servers. As a result, designing a data center network that interconnects this massive number of servers, and providing efficient and fault-tolerant routing service are becoming an urgent need and a challenge that will be addressed in this thesis. Since this is a hot research topic, many solutions are proposed like adapting new interconnection technologies and new algorithms for data centers. However, many of these solutions generally suffer from performance problems, or can be quite costly. In addition, devoted efforts have not focused on quality of service and power efficiency on data center networks. So, in order to provide a novel solution that challenges the drawbacks of other researches and involves their advantages, we propose to develop new data center interconnection networks that aim to build a scalable, cost-effective, high performant and QoS-capable networking infrastructure. In addition, we suggest to implement power aware algorithms to make the network energy effective. Hence, we will particularly investigate the following issues: 1) Fixing architectural and topological properties of the new proposed data centers and evaluating their performances and capacities of providing robust systems under a faulty environment. 2) Proposing routing, load-balancing, fault-tolerance and power efficient algorithms to apply on our architectures and examining their complexity and how they satisfy the system requirements. 3) Integrating quality of service. 4) Comparing our proposed data centers and algorithms to existing solutions under a realistic environment. In this thesis, we investigate a quite challenging topic where we intend, first, to study the existing models, propose improvements and suggest new methodologies and algorithms.
