CoreLab: an emerging network testbed employing hosted virtual machine monitor
Network testbeds for developing, deploying, and experimenting with new network services have evolved as recent rapid progress in virtualization technology. This paper proposes a new network testbed that enhances PlanetLab and is based on a hosted virtual machine monitor (VMM) as a virtual execution environment (VEE) for network services to run on. This paper reports our experiences in developing such a prototype network testbed employing Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) as a hosted VMM. The paper examines the performance and scalability of the prototype to see whether or not it fulfills what we believe to be the requirements for a new network testbed. Categories and Subject Descriptors C.2.1 [Computer-Communication Networks]: Network Architecture and Design General Terms Design, Implementation, Performance Keywords Network testbed, Virtualization, Virtual machine, Hosted Virtual machine monitor
