Datacenter networks interconnect server and storage devices, allowing them to collectively process massive amounts of data. In this talk, I will describe the industry's trend towards flattened datacenter networks and I will present some of the solutions that we have been working on in IBM.
Finally, I will also present some earlier results on all-optical datacenter networks.
