The future infrastructures of data centers and cloud computing are becoming software defined. Although these infrastructures consist of both communications and storage resources, they are generally studied separately. Hence, applications and platforms have to precisely define the virtual environment in which they wish to run. The communication performance decreases due to overlook of the properties of storage devices while storage performance may also get impacted by communication system. The software-defined methodology offers an opportunity to bridge their gap and deliver high performance. The SDDCS workshop provides a multi-disciplinary forum for networks and systems research spanning data communications, networking, storage systems and devices, as well as applications.
SDDCS aims to bring together industry and academia to jointly explore recent progresses related to the potential performance bottleneck and the gap between communications and storage in the software-defined context. We particularly encourage contributions containing highly original ideas, new approaches, and/or groundbreaking results.
Topics of interest in SDDCS include but are not limited to:
Software-defined communication protocols
Software-defined storage devices
Convergent design for communications and storage
Non-volatile storage support for network transmission
Storage deduplication for remote cloud backups
Data collection and analytics for system optimization
Dynamic workload redistribution and scheduling
Non-volatile devices in network switches
Storage virtualization in network end systems
Security for SDDCS schemes
Programmable interfaces for convergent design
User studies and experiences of real-world applications
