In this paper, we consider to apply a joint defragmentation (DF) of spectrum and computing resources in the inter-datacenter (inter-DC) networks built over elastic optical infrastructure based on the optical orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (O-OFDM) technology. We propose joint DF algorithms that consist of a request selection strategy to select active requests for reconfiguring and an anycast-based DF routing and spectrum assignment (DF-RSA) to reconfigure the selected requests.

The simulation results show that by considering the usages of spectrum and computing resources jointly, the proposed algorithms can improve the blocking performance of the inter-DC network significantly with controlled numbers of DF operations.
