Abstract

Data centers are the infrastructures that support the cloud computing services. So, their topologies have an important role on controlling the performance of these services. Designing an efficient topology with a high scalability and a good network performance is one of the most important challenges in data centers. This paper surveys recent research advances linked to data center network topologies. We review some representative topologies and discuss their proprieties in details. We compare them in terms of average path length, network fault tolerance, scalability and connection pattern techniques.
