Virtualization and isolation has become a key part of SDN management, control, and data plane (aka NFV) solutions. This talk will focus on the spectrum of options from processes to virtual machines that provide virtual environments for testing and development of SDN controller platforms, as well as deployment environments for network functions. It will outline the features of hypervisors and kernels that are used to provide different types of isolation and virtualization, including memory, network, and file system isolation, and the overhead associated with each. It will also examine how (and why) different container platforms (e.g. Mininet, Docker, LXC) use different combinations of virtualization features to create virtual environments.
