Avi Freedman, ServerCentral

Avi Freedman is CTO and VP of Cloud Services with ServerCentral, where he is rolling out a Private Cloud Platform for Enterprise and content provider customers. Prior to joining ServerCentral, Avi was at Akamai for 9.9 years where he founded the network group and played in the vast Akamai geek sandbox, interfacing Akamai Technologies to the real world. Avi founded Philadelphia's original ISP, netaxs, and started teaching Internet routing in the real world in the mid-90s. He was a founding member of the ARIN advisory council and is actively involved in the network community.
Abstract: The tutorial introduces service providers to some more advanced BGP features and techniques to aid with operating their networks within the Internet. After a recap of iBGP, eBGP and common attributes, the tutorial will look at the various scaling techniques available, when to use BGP instead of an IGP, and examine policy options available through the use of local preference, MED and communities. The second half of the tutorial looks at deployment techniques, including BGP network design, the announcing and receiving prefixes, aggregation, routing table growth and stability, finishing off with some configuration advice.

Abstract: Many people think they understand how to use and understand traceroute, yet the large number of traceroute based tickets at any sizable ISP proves that the vast majority of people do not. Even the ISPs themselves are frequently unable to come up with staff who are qualified to look at a traceroute and interpret it correctly.

Abstract: In this paper, we present the largest study of global Internet traffic since the start of the commercial Internet. We analyze two years of detailed traffic statistics covering 256 Exabytes of<BR> Internet traffic across 110 large and geographically diverse cable operators, international transit backbones, regional networks and content providers. Our analysis reveals significant changes in the logical topology of the Internet, including the evolution of a new Internet non-tier1 ``core''. Specifically, we show the majority of Internet traffic by volume now flows directly between large content providers, data center / CDNs and consumer networks. We also show significant changes in Internet application usage, including a<BR> global decline of P2P and a dramatic rise in video traffic. We conclude with estimates of the current size of the Internet by traffic volume and rate of annualized Internet growth.

Data Center Challenges: Building Networks for Agility
Meeting: NANOG47
Date / Time: 2009-10-20 10:30am - 11:00pm
Room: Grand
Presenters: Speakers:

David A. Maltz, Microsoft Research

David A. Maltz is in the Networking Research Group of Microsoft Research where he designs new architectures for data center and enterprise networks and investigates techniques for managing IT infrastructure. He was a founder of startup companies in network traffic management and wireless networking, leading engineering efforts at each.
Abstract: To be agile and cost effective, data centers must allow dynamic resource allocation across large server pools. Today, the highest barriers to achieving this agility are limitations imposed by the network, such as bandwidth bottlenecks, subnet layout, and VLAN restrictions. To overcome this challenge, we present VL2, a practical network architecture that scales to support huge data centers with 100,000 servers while providing uniform high capacity between servers, performance isolation between services, and Ethernet layer-2 semantics. <BR> <BR> VL2 uses (1) flat addressing to allow service instances to be placed anywhere in the network, (2) Valiant Load Balancing to spread traffic uniformly across network paths, and (3) end-system based address resolution to scale to large server pools, without introducing complexity to the network control plane. VL2’s design is driven by detailed measurements of traffic and fault data from a large operational cloud service provider. VL2’s implementation leverages proven network technologies, already available at low cost in high-speed hardware implementations, to build a scalable and reliable network architecture. As a result, VL2 networks can be deployed today, and we have built a working prototype with 300 servers. We evaluate the merits of the VL2 design using measurement, analysis, and experiments. Our VL2 prototype shuffles 2.7 TB of data among 75 servers in 395 seconds – sustaining a rate that is 94% of the maximum possible.

Manish Karir, Merit Network

Manish Karir as the Research Program Manager leads the Networking Research and Development group at Merit Network Inc. He is responsible for setting the overall research agenda for the group as well as program management for various projects. At Merit he has led the research activities of Merit in the direction of Internet data analysis and tool development. Some of the successful projects have included the development of BGP-Inspect as a joint project with the University of Maryland which provides a custom backend database that enables fast web based queries in order to extract relevant BGP routing information from vast quantities of raw data; as well the development of a unique software tool called Flamingo that enables Internet traffic data exploration in real-time. Flamingo provides an intuitive 3-dimensional network traffic data representations, as well as the necessary navigation and filtering controls to allow users to manipulate the visual displays. Manish has also been involved with the University if Michigan on the Department of Homeland Security funded PREDICT project, as well as an effort to study, detect, and mitigate the threat posed by Botnets. Based on his research activities, Manish has published technical papers in various refereed conferences or as Merit technical reports, and has often presented his work at these venues. Most recently Manish has overseen the DARPA funded Control Plane program at Merit as well as a project to develop a novel technique for sharing IPv4 addresses.
Abstract: The Internet is rapidly nearing IPv4 address space exhaustion. Current projections predict that within the next two years, all IPv4 address blocks will have been assigned. Various methods such as IPv6 and IPv4 NAT have been proposed to address this scarcity. IPv6 introduces a new set of networking protocols that expands the available number of Internet addresses, while NAT relies on modification of packet headers by the network to implement IPv4 address sharing. In this paper we present a technique that allows multiple end hosts on a network to share a single IP address by relying on the use of a modified hardware address resolution protocol. Using the proposed approach it is possible to allow thousands of end hosts to share a single IPv4 address and at the same time be able to maintain an end-to-end consistent network.<BR> Our approach is fundamentally different from current techniques, as it does not require that packets from the end-host be modified at the network layer by an intermediate entity as they transit the network. In addition, each end-host can use a valid routable public IP address. We focus on an expanded use of existing networking protocols such as ARP and DNS to build a novel IPv4 address sharing technique. We have developed an initial implementation of our ideas via a modified Linux kernel which demonstrates the feasibility of our approach.
