Abstract: Network failure in cloud datacenter could result from inefficient resource allocation; scheduling and logical segmentation of physical machines (network constraints). This is highly undesirable in Distributed Cloud Computing Networks (DCCNs) running mission critical services. Such failure has been identified in the University of Nigeria datacenter network situated in the south eastern part of Nigeria. In this paper, the architectural decomposition of a proposed DCCN was carried out while exploring its functionalities for grid performance. Virtualization services such as resource allocation and task scheduling were employed in heterogeneous server clusters. The validation of the DCCN performance was carried out using trace files from Riverbed Modeller 17.5 in order to ascertain the influence of virtualization on server resource pool. The QoS metrics considered in the analysis are: the service delay time, resource availability, throughput and utilization. From the validation analysis of the DCCN, the following results were obtained: average throughput (bytes/Sec) for DCCN = 40.00%, DCell = 33.33% and BCube = 26.67%. Average resource availability response for DCCN = 38.46%, DCell = 33.33%, and BCube = 28.21%. DCCN density on resource utilization = 40% (when logically isolated) and 60% (when not logically isolated). From the results, it was concluded that using virtualization in a cloud DataCenter servers will result in enhanced server performance offering lower average wait time even with a higher request rate and longer duration of resource use (service availability). By evaluating these recursive architectural designs for network operations, enterprises ready for Spine and leaf model could further develop their network resource management schemes for optimal performance.
