Google has long been a pioneer in distributed computing and data processing, and we’ve known that great computing infrastructure like this requires great networking technology. For the past decade we have been building our own network hardware and software to connect all of the servers in our datacenters together, and also to connect our datacenters with each other, with Software Defined Networking principles in mind.

This talk walks through the evolution of Google’s SDN-based networking infrastructure, from building an SDN-based WAN (B4), to allocating wide area bandwidth amongst thousands of individual applications based on centralized policy management (BwE), to creating building-scale data center fabrics (Jupiter). We will discuss how technologies were cross leveraged in building these networks, the operational challenges faced, and the lessons learned.
