Hi, We have just submitted a new version of our draft, addressing comments received on the mailing list and during the last meeting. We are aiming to submit a new version before the cutoff, so if you have additional comments/suggestions/input, it will be appreciated.
Thanks, Carlos (on behalf of the rest of the co-authors)
--- Begin Message ---A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item of the Network Function Virtualization of the IETF. Title : Network Virtualization Research Challenges Authors : Carlos J. Bernardos Akbar Rahman Juan Carlos Zuniga Luis M. Contreras Pedro Aranda Filename : draft-irtf-nfvrg-gaps-network-virtualization-02.txt Pages : 23 Date : 2016-10-18 Abstract: This document describes open research challenges for network virtualization. Network virtualization is following a similar path as previously taken by cloud computing. Specifically, Cloud computing popularized migration of computing functions (e.g., applications) and storage from local, dedicated, physical resources to remote virtual functions accessible through the Internet. In a similar manner, network virtualization is encouraging migration of networking functions from dedicated physical hardware nodes to a virtualized pool of resources. However, network virtualization can be considered to be a more complex problem than cloud computing as it not only involves virtualization of computing and storage functions but also involves abstraction of the network itself. This document describes current research challenges in network virtualization including guaranteeing quality-of-service, energy efficiency, supporting multiple domains, network slicing, self-management, device virtualization, privacy and security. In addition, some proposals are made for new activities in IETF/IRTF that could address some of these challenges.
