Abstract

Virtualized software-defined networking (SDN) has been drawing increasing attention in data centers. SDN enables the creation of arbitrary and flexible virtual networks. However, given that the physical network is shared among multiple tenants, the throughput of a tenant can interfere with that of the other tenants, and the throughput requirement on each tenant cannot be met. To solve this problem, we propose TALON, a throughput allocation scheme based on traffic load-balancing. TALON allocates a throughput per tenant flow by calculating multiple paths to fulfill the traffic requirement. We design and implement TALON using an open-source network hypervisor. The evaluation results show that each tenant's throughput requirements are nearly met. In addition, the throughput increases by up to 2.29 times compared to that of a non-load-balancing network.
