Optimal VDC service provisioning in optically interconnected disaggregated data centers
Rights accessOpen Access
Virtual data center (VDC) is a key service in modern data center (DC) infrastructures. However, the rigid architecture of traditional servers inside DCs may lead to blocking situations when deploying VDC instances. To overcome this problem, the disaggregated DC paradigm is introduced. In this letter, we present an integer linear programming (ILP) formulation to optimally allocate VDC requests on top of an optically interconnected disaggregated DC infrastructure, aiming to quantify the benefits that such an architecture can bring when compared with traditional server-centric DCs. Moreover, a lightweight simulated annealing-based heuristic is provided for the scenarios where the ILP scalability is challenged. The obtained numerical results reveal the substantial benefits yielded by the resource disaggregation paradigm.
