Abstract

In the future, virtual networks will be allocated, maintained and managed much like clouds offering flexibility, extensibility and elasticity with resources acquired for a limited time and even on a lease basis. Adaptive provisioning is required to maintain virtual network topologies, comply with established contracts, expand initial allocations on demand, release resources no longer useful, optimize resource utilization and respond to anomalies, faults and evolving demands. In this paper, we elaborate on adaptive virtual resource provisioning to maintain virtual networks, allocated initially on demand, in response to a virtual network creation request. We propose a distributed fault-tolerant embedding algorithm, which relies on substrate node agents to cope with failures and severe performance degradation. This algorithm coupled with dynamic resource binding is integrated and evaluated within a medium-scale experimental infrastructure.
