Abstract:
Core Network Services provides network connectivity for PayPal site infrastructure. To address 5 9s’ site reliability goals, the demand for network to perform at its best keeps growing. PayPal transformed its data center networks by deploying white-box leaf/spine designs to help with horizontal scaling, low latency, and resilience to failures. By developing common framework layer, PayPal is able to address network automation/service API needs in multi-vendor environment.
