Transcript

  • 1. Value of Virtualized Programmable Network Infrastructures Future Internet Assembly, Poznan, 25. October 2011 David Hausheer Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology Technische Universität Darmstadt E-Mail: hausheer@kom.tu-darmstadt.de http://www.kom.tu-darmstadt.de/ Associated to:
  • 2. 1. What is the case/topic/application of virtualization highlighted? <ul><li>Virtualized programmable network infrastructures </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Split of physical networking equipment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Isolation of different network «slices» </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Supporting co-existance of legacy and new network </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Network programmability enables to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Customize networking equipment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>E.g. change packet forwarding or run arbitrary code </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Easily deploy and test new algorithms </li></ul></ul>Future Internet Assembly, Poznan, 25. October 2011
  • 3. 2. What is the identified/visioned key value item: Who is the value creator? Who are value consumers? <ul><li>Network Testbeds, e.g. GENI / FIRE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fully programmable network testbeds </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Useful to experiment with new network protocols </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Value consumers: mainly network researchers, not application developers </li></ul></ul><ul><li>OpenFlow </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Limits network programmability to flow-based routing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Software-defined treatment and forwarding of flows </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Harness the power of the open source community (similar to Linux) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Simplifies central management of the network and reduces costs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Value consumers: networking environments like datacenters </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reduction in costs adds up over a large number of devices </li></ul></ul></ul>Future Internet Assembly, Poznan, 25. October 2011
  • 4. 3. Which is the key technology/feature to create value? <ul><li>Deep programmability </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No limitations in support of new applications </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Supported features, e.g. priority scheduling, flow-state based decisions, time-stamping of packets, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Separation of traffic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Isolation to avoid negative impact of malicious applications </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Protect applications against attacks and provide higher QoS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Comes at a certain cost of efficiency </li></ul></ul>Future Internet Assembly, Poznan, 25. October 2011
  • 5. 4. Which are the main bottleneck/challenges expected to hinder value creation? <ul><ul><ul><li>Programmability comes at a performance cost </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>OpenFlow limits programmability, but doesn’t support of full range of apps </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>E.g. decisions cannot be based on flow states </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>There is no compelling “killer app” that truly needs the new features </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>High bandwidth apps can be supported by overprovisioning etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>But: Killer apps cannot be tested w/o supporting infrastructure -> Deadlock! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Network providers lack incentives for adoption </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Providers bear most of the risks (implementing the changes) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>… but may only get a small additional revenue </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>At the same time, providers don’t bear the risk of the status quo </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Coordination problems among providers lead to single domain islands </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Interoperability issues, conflicts of interest, revenue sharing </li></ul></ul>Future Internet Assembly, Poznan, 25. October 2011
  • 6. 5. Which liability (value guarantor) and revenue scenarios are proposed/considered? <ul><ul><ul><li>Infrastructure needs to be used by a wide community of users </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Compelling, accessible, and open platform </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Connect and excite real users (not only researchers) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>User-definable network </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>With simple language to enable inexperienced user to quickly setup new apps </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Multi-Provider support </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Preserve distributed network management </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>With different ownership and respective boundaries </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide appropriate incentives for provider coordination </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Support of E2E QoS, SLA verification, billing, revenue sharing, etc. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>E.g. E2E issues could be resolved via federations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cf. ongoing work in EU project ETICS </li></ul></ul></ul>Future Internet Assembly, Poznan, 25. October 2011
