Today’s telecom services are driven by demand for cloud-based services. Customers want dynamic,
on-demand cloud services over any combination of virtual and physical networks. The most urgent problem service providers have today is automating the delivery of network services and accelerating cloud service rollouts.

Service Function Chaining provides end-to-end network service delivery automation that operates completely independent of whether the network is physical or virtual. It integrates with today’s network infrastructure to create a network service abstraction layer that isolates operations from tedious and diverse configurations at the network layer, making the service layer simple, generic, and programmable. Network service can be auto provisioned and deployed on both general COTS platforms and legacy network devices in your data center using service function chaining, in which a wide variety of service functions scattered over the newtork may be chained together in a flexible and agile manner to provide desired service treatment. Scale-out of these service functions to handle added load or scale-in to reduce the resource usage is an integral part of the service function chaining solution.

This presentation will talk about how you can integrate the service function chaining feature, which is being developed as part of OpenStack Neutron, into your Cloud Platform to auto provision differentiated Cloud services in an agile and flexible way, and how to turbo-charge your cloud using service chaining. The following topics will be covered:

1. Overview of OpenStack Neutron Service Function Chaining Solution
2. How to define the service chains in a simple, prescriptive manner to create cloud services tailored to the needs of individual customers
3. How to ensure vendor independence and be agnostic of underlying network technology
4. How to achieve scalability and elasticity (scale-out and scale-in) of service functions on your cloud platform
5. How to integrate container technologies, such as Docker, with Service Function Chaining
