Abstract [en]

Service Chains have developed into an important concept in service provisioning in today’s and future Clouds. Cloud systems, e.g., Amazon Web Services (AWS), permit the implementation and deployment of new applications, services and service chains rapidly and flexibly. They employ the idea of Infrastructure as Code (IaC), which is the process of managing and provisioning computing infrastructure and its configuration through machine-processable definition files.

In this paper, we first detail future service chains with particular focus on Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and machine learning in AI. Afterwards, we analyze and summarize the capabilities of today’s IaC tools for orchestrating Cloud infrastructures and service chains. We compare the functionality of the major five IaC tools: Puppet, Chef, SaltStack, Ansible, and Terraform. In addition, we demonstrate how to analyze the functional capabilities of one of the tools. Finally, we give an outlook on future research issues on using IaC tools across multiple operators, data center domains, and different stockholders that collaborate on service chains.
