KEYNOTE – Sensors and Data Analytics in large-scale SDN Data Centers

Vijoy Pandey | Head of Engineering, Data Center Networking | Google

 

 

The presentation will introduce the unique challenges in monitoring and analysis of large SDN-based Data Center Fabrics. The talk will focus on the operational experiences gained in deploying these systems at scale.

We start with introducing SDN based data center networking deployment at Google over the past 10 years and the challenges in designing, deploying and operating them. We outline an intent-based declarative approach to modeling fabric topologies given a set of capacity, topological and traffic constraints. We then describe a pipeline for generating and analyzing network sensor data; specifically touching upon 3 analytics applications – performing topology verification, routing consistency, and end host granular reachability analysis.
