IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) cloud
applications require reliable, fault-tolerant networks, supporting
real-time guarantees and allowing interaction with other
applications already existing in the datacenter. The Software
Defined Networks (SDN) paradigm is especially suited for the
management of the network cloud because of its fine grained
admission control and the management flexibility provided by
the centralized resource management.
This paper presents a SDN management approach for IIoT
datacenters, which provides an efficient fault-tolerant network,
enabled with deterministic QoS guarantees. By taking advantage
of a centralized resource management mechanism, the proposed
solution integrates topology definition with resource allocation,
allowing to efficiently distribute available network resources for
admitted packet flows.
