No-wait Data Centers: System could reduce Transmission Delays by 99.6 Percent

July 18, 2014 3:59 pm | by Larry Hardesty, MIT | News | Comments

Big Web sites usually maintain their own “data centers,” banks of tens or even hundreds of thousands of servers, all passing data back and forth to field users’ requests. Like any big, decentralized network, data centers are prone to congestion: Packets of data arriving at the same router at the same time are put in a queue, and if the queues get too long, packets can be delayed.
