Abstract

This paper explores some of the mechanisms, components, and abstractions that can be utilized in order to encompass network slicing into a bigger picture for NFV delivery. In particular, we make the case for Data Center (DC) infrastructure slicing, as part of the full NFVI foundation, to ensure that the attributes prescribed to network slices are propagated into the Data Center. We show how creating a VIM (Virtual Infrastructure Manager) on-demand and dynamically allocating a new VIM for each slice, rather than having one for the whole DC, which can be beneficial for various precision scenarios. Index Terms—infrastructure slicing, VIM, network slicing.
