In a cloud-native world, applications are decomposed into “microservices” running in containers rather than dedicated VMs. This is so that they can more easily take advantage of the shared resources, speed, and agility of cloud environments. Since VNFs are, at their core, software applications themselves, they too are now being decomposed into their constituent microservices to become “cloud-native.”
This whitepaper "Network Programmability in Cloud-Native NFV" discusses some of the considerations for developing cloud-native VNFs. Readers will learn in depth the impact of cloud-native approaches on today’s programmable networks and why NEPs should continue to prioritize programmability in their cloud-native VNFs for the future.
When: June 7 at 11:00 am ET
Join our upcoming webinar with Light Reading Sr. Analyst, James Crawshaw and our very own John Lawitzke, ConfD Product Manager as they discuss the network equipment provider (NEP) market and the period of unprecedented changes happening now due to advanced approaches including SDN and NFV. How do NEPs cope with this exponential change? Through automation. This webinar will discuss programmability as the key enabler for automation and ultimately in making devices more programmable.

Our latest whitepaper “Network Programmability in Cloud-Native NFV” discusses the implications of the current industry trends on the network programmability requirements of VNFs. It describes the cloud-native approach of using microservices and containers to building a VNF and its benefits. The whitepaper gives you a perspective on network programmability requirements to consider when building your own VNFs.
