ENTANGLE: intEr- and iNTra-domAin Network function chaininG in multi-cLoud Environment
(Winter term 2019/2020 & summer term 2020)
Services in Network Function Virtualization (NFV), the networking counterpart of Cloud Computing, are, usually, consist of multiple network functions (e.g., Firewall, Load Balancer ) that need to be chained together to work as a whole. Chaining network functions is challenging as network functions can reside in different technological, administrative, and geographical domains and run on heterogeneous resources. This project group will attempt to mitigate this challenge focusing on providing chaining for network functions that are deployed on OpenStack and Kubernetes domains and running on Commodity-of-the-shelf (COTS), GPU, and FPGA resources.
