Resource Allocation for Virtualized Functions (Nabeel Akhtar)
The virtualization of network functions aims to decouple network software
from proprietary, dedicated hardware appliances, termed “middleboxes"
(e.g., traffic shapers, Network Address Translation boxes). Similarly,
application virtualization allows an application to work in an isolated
virtualized environment. Moreover, in cloud-based or service-oriented
application architectures, an application can be composed of the services
of many application components, where each service component can run
virtualized. Thus, under function (service) virtualization, (virtual)
functions can run on any general-purpose device within a virtual machine,
in an operating system container, or as a serverless “Function as a
The flexibility with which (virtual) services can be deployed and managed —
i.e., chained, allocated resources, migrated — allows their hosting “close"
to the users, in an edge cloud/datacenter, thus meeting the application
requirements of ultra-low latency and high throughput.
The deployment and management of virtualized services is a complex problem,
and none of the academic solutions have widespread commercial adoption. In
this talk, I will discuss the current state of the art in resource
allocation for virtualized services and highlight open issues in this area.
