Software Defined Networking
This paper explores flow-based load balancing of network traffic on multi-homed hosts. The approach is a client-side-only solution, and can therefore easily be deployed. The paper specifically explores flow-based load balancing for web and video traffic use cases.
In this paper, we introduce SCOR (Software-defined Constrained Optimal Routing), a new Software Defined Networking (SDN) Northbound Interface for QoS routing and traffic engineering.
Software-Defined Networking (SDN) removes the limitations of current network infrastructures by separating the control plane from the data forwarding plane. Networks can be managed more cost-effectively and autonomously through centralising decision-making and programmability.This opens up markets for infrastructure providers to provision and offer network resources on-demand to multiple tenants and for service providers to develop and deploy their services on shared infrastructure resources...
