In this talk, I will draw upon two recent examples of work from our group that highlight some of these challenges, and suggest potential solutions. The first work explores failure masking in content provider wide-area network routers. These routers have novel interconnect structures that can be exploited, with clever internal traffic routing schemes, to mask a large number of internal failures. The second work examines an important aspect of availability loss in modern networks: network management operations that are needed to evolve the infrastructure. In this work, we explore the question of whether it is possible to, and what it means to, design networks for manageability.
