Abstract: Containers are the biggest hype today - In the latest Heavy Reading Survey (October 2016), 68.4% of the responders said they will use containers for NFV. While containers provide high scale, low latency and a low startup time, however, no one really understands the complete impact of containers on how it changes the virtualization model for NFV and what impact it has on the networking and orchestration model for NFV.
Containers are well dsigned for scale out applications but for containers to work with NFV we need the ability to assign public IP addresses to containers. That is not so easy as it sounds.
In this presentation, we will discuss the NFV architecture with containers in detail. In particular we will discuss topics like Kuryr (Containers and Openstack), Container networking, Container instantiation with Openstack, Scale, Performance (Latency and Throughput) and data path acceleration for containers.
