This project was aimed to build a network load balancing architecture for data centers that use recent advances in Software-Defined Networking (SDN) to achieve an efficient, failure-resilient, agile and deployable load balancing solution, titled ‘SLAB’ (Software-Defined Agile Load Balancing). In short, a cloud-scale load balancer, to help datacenter operators (including local telcos and ISPs) to achieve resilience to resource failures with real-time diagnostics and agile re-routing.
