T. Cucinotta, L. Pannocchi, F. Galli, S. Fichera, S. Lahiri, A. Artale. "Optimum VM Placement for NFV Infrastructures," in Proceedings of the 10th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E 2022), September 26-30, 2022, Pacific Grove, CA, USA.

Abstract

This paper constitutes an industrial experience report about the use of data center optimization strategies for softwarized network services within the Vodafone resource man- agement unit for the management of virtualized network infrastructures. The problem of optimum virtual machine placement as needed in the network operator context is detailed, and different solving strategies are proposed and discussed, including heuristics based on genetic optimization. Also, experimental results are presented that compare these strategies with one another from the standpoint of optimality and execution times, using a data-set made of some of the real problems that had to be solved in the past few years by Vodafone, in order to optimize its capacity planning decisions. This data-set is also being published under an open data license, for possible re-use in future research works on the topic.
