A scalable routing mechanism for stateful microservices

Scalability is an important requirement in the development and the operation of applications in a cloud environment. To handling heavy concurrency in the input load, many design-related and operational factors should be considered. The microservice architecture patterns provide better means to increase the scalability than traditional software architecture patterns. However, certain aspects of applications such as the need to persist/maintain the application state require additional measures in the design and the supporting mechanism. We propose a scalable routing mechanism for applications designed according to the microservice architecture. In particular, a cloud infrastructure resource reservation application has been designed with some stateful services. The proposed approach maintains a good scalability, which provides a mean to achieve the efficient usage of the infrastructure resources.

Multidimensional Resource Allocation in NFV Cloud

  • Goldstein M.
  • Raz D.
  • Segall I.

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is a new networking paradigm in which network functionality is implemented on top of virtual infrastructure deployed over COTS servers. One of the main motivations for the shift of telco operators into this paradigm is cost reduction, thus the efficient use of resources is an important ...

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is a novel paradigm allowing flexible and scalable implementation of network services on cloud infrastructure. An important enabler for the NFV paradigm is software switching, which needs to satisfy rigid network requirements such as high throughput and low latency. Despite recent research activities in the field ...

Coexistence-aware dynamic channel allocation for 3.5 GHz shared spectrum systems

The paradigm of shared spectrum allows secondary devices to opportunistically access spectrum bands underutilized by primary owners. As the first step, the FCC targeted sharing the 3.5 GHz (3550–3700 MHz) federal spectrum with commercial systems. The proposed rules require a Spectrum Access System to implement a three-tiered spectrum management framework, ...
