Optimising NFV Service Chains on OpenStack Using Docker

Docker in the recent past has gained a lot of attention given the simplification and ease of use it provides to the existing container technology. It comes with its plethora of advantages, both technical and otherwise. It is lightweight, open, secure and backed by a strong community of developers and promoters.

Of late, even the network functions which were traditionally run on the hardware boxes since ages are being rewritten in software defined networking model. This brought forward a paradigm shift in running these functions on Virtual Machines and are now being ported as Docker Instances. This paradigm shift is bringing around a change in the way we have been looking at network functions and deploying them. There is lot of scope for improved utilization, programmability, and better scalability.

But this change also comes with a new set of challenges. We are trying to identify and solve some of them here.

 

The Telecom/NFV track is brought to you by OpenStack and OPNFV.


What can I expect to learn?

Beginners of SDN and NFV can learn about basics of traditional service chaining and the challenges that are introduced by using them in a virtualized environment or a cloud based deployment.

Service providers and Enterprise product owners can gain from the approach to re-evaluate their deployment and look to improve their performance and scalability

Telecom companies can re-evaluate their Bill Of Material and reduce CAPEX and OPEX

Docker enthusiasts and open source developers will have a lot to gain from the session
