Locations of server racks in a data center are constrained by space and power limitations. Connecting pairs of racks optimally (e.g., the shortest-path with sufficient diversity) using fibers involves substantial computation, modeling, and path-walking. This disclosure describes techniques to achieve N-fold diversity with the shortest-path between racks in a data center interconnected by fibers (housed within cable trays) such that the multiple diversity paths are optimally short and have few or no overlapping cable-tray segments.
