With the advent of cloud computing, Network Function Virtualization (NFV) has become an important part of the media and telecommunications industry. Instead of designing network applications for deployment on specific hardware the industry is moving towards deploying such functions in virtual machines (VMs) and/or containers on heterogeneous systems. To realize this, it is important that the different network functions can communicate and transfer data between each other in an efficient manner. Our proposal for a master thesis is to evaluate current state-of-the-art technologies and methods for connecting Docker containers with each othe

ABOUT THE POSITION 

We want you to evaluate current state-of-the-art technologies regarding data forwarding in a virtualized environment. A network function can be constructed by interconnecting several Linux single-purpose containers (Docker). The combination of containers then implements the desired higher order functionality.

The infrastructure that enables the data communication between containers is a vital layer of software in such a system. It must provide excellent performance and configurability/flexibility without without overconsuming resources needed for the containers.

The different technologies/methods should be evaluated in terms of:

  • Performance: throughput, delay, and delay variation
  • Resource usage: memory and CPU
  • Scalability
  • Impact on other containers
  • Configurability

Technologies/methods to be evaluated include:

  • Pure software-based forwarding
  • Hardware assisted forwarding
  • Integration with custom hardware

YOUR BACKGROUND 

  •  Basic knowledge of networking technologies
  •  Basic knowledge of virtualization technologies
  •  Experience with Linux
  •  Knowledge in C/C++ and Python

In addition to this we would like you to:

  •  Have a passion for media
  •  Be quick learner and an ability to plan and execute your work

For this project, we will emphasize personal fit. We value entrepreneurial and innovative individuals with real passion for technology.
