PhD Oral Exam

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  
Service" (FaaS).

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.
