Google reduces Cloud latency with updated Andromeda SDN stack


Google on Wednesday took the wraps off latest version of its Andromeda, the a software-defined network (SDN) stack that underpins the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). With this release, packets on the network are able to securely bypass the hypervisor and go directly to the Andromeda software packet processor. This should reduce latency between Compute Engine VMs by 40 percent over the previous version of Andromeda. Since Google launched Andromeda in 2014, it's been able to reduce Compute Engine latency by nearly a factor of eight. "Without having to do anything, [customers'] code in some cases will run noticeably faster and better," Google engineering fellow Amin Vadhat told ZDNet.
