OpenFlow and Xen-Based Virtual Network Migration

Abstract : Migration is an important feature for network virtualization because it allows the reallocation of virtual resources over the physical resources. In this paper, we investigate the characteristics of different migration models, according to their virtualization platforms. We show the main advantages and limitations of using the migration mechanisms provided by Xen and OpenFlow platforms. We also propose a migration model for Xen, using data and control plane separation, which outperforms the Xen standard migration. We developed two prototypes, using Xen and OpenFlow, and we performed evaluation experiments to measure the impact of the network migration on traffic forwarding.
