An empirical case for container-driven fine-grained VNF resource flexing


In this paper, we make a case for using lightweight containers for fine-grained resource flexing for Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs) to meet the demands of varying workloads. We quantitatively compare the VNF performance and infrastructure resource usage of three instantiations (bare metal, virtual machine, and container) of three selected VNFs. The… (More)
