High-Performance 4G/5G Cloud and NFV Infrastructure
The core building blocks of the cloud NFV infrastructure are the server and the VMs that the server hosts. The applications that run in the VMs have different resource requirements – CPU, I/O, memory, etc. As such, operators must deal with different VM profiles, and the ability to place them efficiently on the server infrastructure has a direct impact on the operator’s ability to rapidly deliver the best services. Today, these challenges result in silos of servers that are configured differently, taking down operational efficiency. What is needed is a homogenous server infrastructure managed centrally using tools like OpenStack, where VMs with any profile can be placed anywhere in the server infrastructure and moved at will while maintaining the highest levels of application performance.
