I will discuss the problem of building fast, programmable routers. I will present RouteBricks, a high-end router architecture that consists entirely of commodity servers. RouteBricks achieves high performance by parallelizing router functionality both across multiple servers and across multiple cores within a single server; it is fully programmable using the familiar Click/Linux environment. I will also present RB4 , our 4-server prototype that routes at 35Gbps; this routing capacity can be linearly scaled through the use of additional servers. I will close the talk with an example of what we can do with RouteBricks – I will briefly discuss a simple protocol for Internet-wide troubleshooting and neutrality monitoring.

Short bio: Katerina Argyraki got her PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2007 and is currently a research scientist at EPFL , Switzerland. For her PhD, she worked on the TRIAD project and developed AITF - a network-based solution to bandwidth flooding. Before joining EPFL , she worked for Arista Networks, helping build the control plane for high-end switches. Her research interests lie in the areas of network architecture and protocols with a focus on denial-of-service defenses and network troubleshooting.
