We will investigate efficient and effective use of wireless links and paths in Wireless Data Centers (WDCs) that constitute the critical physical infrastructure of cloud computing providers. Unlike Traditional Data Centers (TDCs), which are all connected with wires, WDCs are formed as, (a) partially wireless, by adding wireless links to current wired infrastructure, named as Hybrid Data Centers (HDCs), or (b) completely wireless, by forming a Completely Wireless Data Center (CWDC) without using any wires. The advantages of WDCs over TDCs are as follows: decreasing infrastructure and cooling costs and also wire complexity; providing a flexible interconnection; decreasing congestion using dynamic wireless links, therefore, increasing throughput. Our work will focus on efficiently adjusting wireless links between data centers to increase the throughput.
