Here is how he describes the three key principles behind the design of Google’s data center networks:
- We arrange our network around a Clos topology, a network configuration where a collection of smaller (cheaper) switches are arranged to provide the properties of a much larger logical switch.
- We use a centralized software control stack to manage thousands of switches within the data center, making them effectively act as one large fabric.
- We build our own software and hardware using silicon from vendors, relying less on standard Internet protocols and more on custom protocols tailored to the data center.
