According to Wikipedia, Routing is the process of selecting a path for traffic in a network or between or across multiple networks. Routing is no doubt a key enabling technology of the Internet and has been evolving over the last few decades. With the development of Cloud Computing, Edge Computing and Network Virtualization’s new generation of data center networks based on IP fabrics, new challenges as well as opportunities for advancing the state of the art in routing technology appear.
In this series of articles about modern routing, we start with an introduction to lay out the history and foundation of routing in IP fabrics, principles, and problems. Later, we'll have articles to introduce two novel routing protocols designed for large-scale data centers: Routing In Fat Trees (RIFT) and Link State Vector Routing (LSVR). This “crash course” should be a joy ride.
