ABSTRACT
We describe an FPGA-based datacenter network simulator
for researchers to rapidly experiment with O(10,000) node
datacenter network architectures. Our simulation approach
configures the FPGA hardware to implement abstract mod-
els of key datacenter building blocks, including all levels of
switches and servers. We model servers using a complete
