SNF: Serverless Network Functions [article]

Arjun Singhvi, Junaid Khalid, Aditya Akella, Sujata Banerjee
2019 arXiv   pre-print
It is increasingly common to outsource network functions (NFs) to the cloud. However, no cloud providers offer NFs-as-a-Service (NFaaS) that allows users to run custom NFs.  ...  SNF allocates work at the granularity of flowlets observed in network traffic, whereas billing and programming occur on the basis of packets.  ...  SNF decouples the unit at which functions operate and the unit of serverless work allocation, using flowlets for the latter.  ...

rFaaS: Enabling High Performance Serverless with RDMA and Decentralization [article]

Marcin Copik, Konstantin Taranov, Alexandru Calotoiu, Torsten Hoefler
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We show that our remote functions add only negligible overhead on top of the fastest available networks, and we improve the execution latency by orders of magnitude compared to contemporary FaaS platforms  ...  We identify key limitations of modern serverless systems - centralized scheduling and inefficient network transport - and propose an overhaul of FaaS architectures with decentralized allocations and low-latency  ...  Union's Horizon 2020 programme (grant agreement EPIGRAM-HS, No. 801039, and grant agreement RED-SEA, No. 955776), and from the Schweizerische Nationalfonds zur Förderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung (SNF  ...

SeBS: A Serverless Benchmark Suite for Function-as-a-Service Computing [article]

Marcin Copik, Grzegorz Kwasniewski, Maciej Besta, Michal Podstawski, Torsten Hoefler
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) is one of the most promising directions for the future of cloud services, and serverless functions have immediately become a new middleware for building scalable and cost-efficient  ...  To address this challenge, we propose the Serverless Benchmark Suite: the first benchmark for FaaS computing that systematically covers a wide spectrum of cloud resources and applications.  ...  European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme (grant agreement DAPP, No. 678880), and from the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF  ...

., from serverless architectures) to the network, accounting not only for IO, but also CPU or energy. We sketch an architecture and present economical motivation and recent technological enablers.  ...  We revisit multi-tenant network virtualization in data centers, and make the case for tenant-specific virtual switches.  ...  In NFV, the programs are naturally network and CPU intensive hence, SNF [21] proposed by Singhvi et al., uses a per-packet granularity for billing serverless NFV applications.  ...

NFV Platform Design: A Survey [article]

Tianzhu Zhang
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Due to the intrinsically inefficient service provisioning in traditional networks, Network Function Virtualization (NFV) keeps gaining attention from both industry and academia.  ...  By replacing the purpose-built, expensive, proprietary network equipments with software network functions consolidated on commodity hardware, NFV envisions a shift towards a more agile and open service  ...  SNF 1 [73] leverages serverless computing for stateful VNFs. It dynamically traces the workload demands for each VNF and allocates compute resources at fine granularity.  ...
