Resumé: Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is opening a new way to run network functions, moving from COTS equipment to Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), to be deployed over Data Centres (DC). VNFs are including traditional network functions such as routing and forwarding, in addition to functions running on middle boxes, such as IDS, Firewall, TCP proxy, Video optimizer, etc. Hence, the end-to-end application traffic is often required to travers various VNFs in a pre-defined path satisfying service provider policy. In this context, a Service Function Chaining (SFC) indicates an ordered list of VNF instances to be used for a specific traffic. Usually, for each SFC request, the NFV orchestrator has to manage, provision and coordinate the allocation of SFs to VMs and the associated network resources. In the proposed PhD thesis we will go beyond state of the art by providing a flexible and SFC- oriented orchestration solutions to define, deploy and manage SFC over multiple domains.
