Abstract

Due to the increasing need for timely and reliable access to user-generated content, Distributed Storage Systems (DSS) became more relevant in the past years. However, since they have more interconnections among layers compared to traditional network applications, load imbalance issues arise. In this paper, we propose a hybrid approach combining server and link load balancing for multipath routing in DSS. The approach is Software Defined Networking (SDN) based, and uses a process we call on-demand inverse multiplexing. Preliminary results show that, by applying the proposal, the overall throughput considerably increases and resource usage remain balanced.
