  • Patent number: 11838361
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media for reducing distributed storage operation latency using segment routing. In some examples, a method can involve receiving, from a client, a message identifying an intent to store or retrieve data on a distributed storage environment, and sending to the client a segment routing (SR) list identifying storage node candidates for storing or retrieving the data. The method can involve steering a data request from the client through a path defined by the SR list based on a segment routing header (SRH) associated with the request, the SRH being configured to steer the request through the path until a storage node from the storage node candidates accepts the request. The method can further involve sending, to the client device, a response indicating that the storage node has accepted the request and storing or retrieving the data at the storage node that accepted the request.

  • Patent number: 11838201
    Abstract: A method includes generating a first shortest path tree for traffic routing in a network, the first shortest path tree identifying a corresponding shortest path from the network node to other nodes in the network and generating a second shortest path tree for traffic routing after removing an element from the network. The second shortest path tree identifies a corresponding shortest path from the network node to the other nodes in the network with the element removed. A third shortest path tree is generated, which is a weighted version of the second shortest path tree with a weight value added to any node or link in the network sharing a SRLG value with the element removed from the network. Network traffic is enforced based on a comparison of the third shortest path tree with at least one of the first shortest path tree and the second shortest path tree.

  • Patent number: 11805055
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a method inserts, by a first computing device, a first value for a capability in a first message that is used in a process to automatically exchange capability values with a second computing device. The first value for the capability indicates the first computing device requires a default route to reach the second computing device as a next hop for sending a packet to a destination. The first computing device sends the first message to the second computing device; and receives a second value for the capability in a second message from the second computing device. The second value indicating the second computing device will send the default route to reach the second computing device. When the default route is received from the second computing device, the first computing device stores the default route from the second computing device in a route table.

  • Patent number: 11799772
    Abstract: Techniques are described for supporting multiple virtual networks over an underlay network. The techniques may provide support for network slicing and enhanced virtual private networks (VPNs) over an underlay network. In general, the techniques include allocating a subset of resources (e.g., nodes and/or links) of the underlay network to a particular virtual network, and advertising the subset of resources to provider edge (PE) routers that are participating in the virtual network. A network controller device may advertise the subset of resources for the virtual network to the respective PE routers using BGP-LS (Border Gateway Protocol-Link State). Based on the advertisements, each of the PE routers generates a restricted view of the full underlay network topology for the virtual network and, thus, only uses the subset of resources in the restricted view to generate routing and forwarding tables for the virtual network.
