Abstract

The use of Distributed Storage Systems (DSS) has considerably increased in the past years, alongside the need for effective data transfer from storage to storage. Although current network infrastructure can reliably handle large amounts of traffic, networking techniques have not changed for several years, leading to an under-use of resources, i.e. most routing solutions still use single-path routing. In this paper, we present a pragmatic approach for multipath routing in DSS, which is based on Software Defined Networking (SDN) that uses parallel links at the edge-side. Path discovery is calculated by finding the k-maximum disjoint paths in a multigraph. Preliminary results show that, by using our multipath solution, not only the overall throughput increases but also the efficiency of resources usage.
