Network Transform – A Tool Based Approach

Shameemraj M. Nadaf, Hemant Kumar Rath, and Anantha Simha

Abstract—To minimize the cost of current operation and future deployment, consolidation or transformation of existing Information Technology (IT) elements is necessary. With IT Transformation of existing servers of one Data Center (DC) or a group of DCs, Network Transformation becomes crucial, such that appropriate bandwidth sizing and switch selection can be performed. So far this process is manual and vendor dependent. Therefore, we propose a Java based semi-automatic tool to provide a solution for Network Transformation and Optimization. We also discuss the performance of the proposed tool through a couple of practical examples and demonstrate significant improvement in cost of deployment and operation post transformation. Along with network transformation, this tool can also be used to analyze chattiness of applications/ports of the existing (As-Is-State) as well as transformed (To-Be-State).

Index Terms—Data center consolidation, server consolidation, network transformation, network optimization, it consolidation, LAN, wan, optimization.
