Inter-Data center communications

IT and Network Services Orchestrator


Emerging cloud applications such as real-time data backup, remote desktop, server clustering, etc. require more traffic being delivered between data centers. To this end, it becomes necessary to deploy network architectures able to do so efficiently, in terms of cost, energy consumption and reliability. Ethernet remains the most used technology in the data center space but the end-to-end provisioning of Ethernet services between remote data center nodes poses a challenging use case that would clearly highlight the benefits of the proposed IT and Network Service Orchestrator.

The proposed IT and Network Services Orchestrator is able to handle intra/inter-Data Center communications and it has been validated in the Cloud Computing platform of the ADRENALINE testbed.
