This class explores the broader theme of understanding the design principles for architecting reliable, secure, and performance networking infrastructures for cloud platforms, big data analytics, IoT, and etc. We will examine the implication of various network paradigms, e.g., programmable data planes or data-driven networking, on the design of next-generation network infrastructures. The goal is to touch upon relevant dimensions in the design space and extract key lessons for designing large-scale infrastructure. The class will cover key enabling technologies in network management (e.g., NFV, programmable data planes, eBPF), and application use-cases driving adopt of these techniques.
