I writing here about Google Cloud's work over the past eight years to bring new levels of performance, scale, reliability, and power efficiency to Google's Jupiter datacenter network.
The combination of optical circuit switching and Software Defined Networking allowed google cloud to bring flexible topologies and real-time traffic engineering to the datacenter, enabling seamless upgrades and adaptation to application and network dynamics.
In an industry first, Google cloud is able to develop and deploy at-scale optical circuit switching to configure network topologies through software control. Through a building-scale, all-optical backbone, Google Cloud can now support heterogeneous technology and evolving mesh topologies, orchestrating the equivalent of thousands of logical fiber moves with no application impact and no physical presence.
Jupiter serves as a key enabler for Google Cloud and dozens of planetary-scale Google services. Now google cloud is able to bring this next level of capabilities to Google services across the world.
