In science:

While graphs that are optimal for the degreediameter problem are not (known to be) provably optimal for our bandwidth optimization problem, these results strongly suggest that Jellyfish’s random topology leaves little room for improvement, even with very carefullyoptimized topologies.
Jellyfish: Networking Data Centers Randomly
We compare Jellyfish with SWDC using the same degree-6 topologies described in the SWDC paper.
Jellyfish: Networking Data Centers Randomly
This figure also shows that constructing Jellyfish from scratch, or using incremental growth yields topologies with very similar path length characteristics.
Jellyfish: Networking Data Centers Randomly
Jellyfish’s throughput is ∼119% of that of the closest competitor, the ring-based small world topology.
Jellyfish: Networking Data Centers Randomly
