Routing packets in a data center network

Accessing data stored on a remote server includes determining a first address of a first server where a block of data identified by a key has been moved from a second server to the first server, the second server having a second address. A first entry of a switch flow table of a datacenter network is updated to indicate that received packets with a destination address including the second address are to be overwritten with the first address.
