Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) provides more resource management flexibility since everything is defined as a software, including the network as Software Defined Network (SDN).Typically, cloud providers overlook the network, which is configured in static way. SDN can help to meet applications goals with dynamic network configuration and provide best-efforts for QoS. Additionally, SDDC might benefit by instead of be composed by heavy Virtual Machines, use light-weight OS Containers. Despite the advantages of SDDC and OS Containers, it brings more complexity for resource provisioning. The goal of this project is to optimize the management of container based workloads deployed on Software defined Data Centers enabled with heterogeneous network fabrics through the use of network-aware placement algorithms that are driven by performance models.
