Hybrid intra-data centre networks, with optical and electrical capabilities, are attracting research interest in recent years. This is attributed to the emergence of new bandwidth greedy applications and novel computing paradigms. A key decision to make in networks of this type is the selection and placement of suitable flows for switching in circuit network. Here, we propose an efficient strategy for flow selection and placement suitable for hybrid Intra-cloud data centre networks. We further present techniques for investigating bottlenecks in a packet networks and for the selection of flows to switch in circuit network. The bottleneck technique is verified on a Software Defined Network (SDN) testbed. We also implemented the techniques presented here in a scalable simulation experiment to investigate the impact of flow selection on network performance. Results obtained from scalable simulation experiment indicate a considerable improvement on average throughput, lower configuration delay, and stability of offloaded flows.
