Techniques for dynamic augmentation of server rack network capacity are provided herein. Network nodes are described that are connected between server rack switches and a rack aggregation layer device. A port allocation controller is also described that can automatically reconfigure the network nodes to create connections, via the network nodes, between the rack aggregation layer device and the server rack switches. These network node connections can be used to alter the network capacities of the server rack switches in response to changing network demands.
