    In spite of the continuing efforts and various policies in place for several years by numerous organizations, hunger remains a global crisis even today. Also, the distressing and dismal fact is that the hunger issue has permeated through the entire world with little to large footprints without any demographic reservations. The latest reports published by the U.N. on the issue of global hunger claims that the produced quantity of food is sufficient to feed the entire world with a population of about 7.3 billion.

    Datacenters host a wide range of today's low-latency applications. To meet their strict latency requirements at scale, datacenter networks are designed as topologies that can provide a large number of parallel paths between each pair of hosts. The recent trend towards simple datacenter network fabric strips most network functionality, including load balancing among these paths, out of the network core and pushes it to the edge. This slows reaction to microbursts, the main culprit of packet loss -- and consequently performance degradation -- in datacenters.
