Software Defined Transport: Flexible and Deployable Flow Rate Control
Chi-Yao Hong, Matthew Caesar, and P. Brighten Godfrey, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Datacenters are increasingly expected to provide vital support for modern, data-intensive applications such as data-intensive distributed computing, large graph/matrix computation, and online services. The large variety of cloud applications have demanded a diverse range of service requirements such as optimizing completion times, meeting task deadlines, and satisfying fairness constraints across tenants. However, legacy transport protocols used today, such as TCP, are known to be ill-suited for meeting modern application requirements.
