1 IP Networks as a Service Victor Reijs Work Package 2 leader 3 rd TERENA End-to-End workshop November 29 th, Prague

2 Mantychore at a glance Mantychore legacy 2006 – MANTICORE 2007 – MANTICORE II – (also with RedIRIS, Cisco and Juniper) Mantychore project ICT-2010 Call 5 – – Virtual Research Communities Total Project Cost: 1,564,386€ EC contribution: 1,399,740€ Start date: October 1 st, 2010 Duration: March 31 st, 2013 (30 months) Partners composition – 1 research center – 1 NREN – 1 international organisation – 3 users – 1 commercial operator

3 Our challenge VISION Provide a software implementation and tools for providing and managing routers and IP Networks as Services MISION By means of : – Infrastructure provisioning: Marketplace of physical/logical routers and IP networks – IP Networks as a Service: Creation and configuration of IP networks L1 and L2 integration Mantychore will be deployed over the infrastructure of 2 NRENS and initially 3 users 3

5 Objective 1: Deploy an operational IP Networks as a Service 5 Enable HEAnet and NORDUnet to provide IP network services to their users through the Mantychore tools, enhancing their service portfolio; thus providing virtual research communities with a useful service that can improve their research activities and optimize the efficiency of use of e- Infrastructures. Mantychore allows third parties to configure network addressing, internal routing, firewalls and external routing policies. Objective 2: Integrated Layer 1-3 services Refine and expand the Mantychore services provided by means of integrating, with the IaaS Framework, solutions for optical (Argia) and Ethernet/MPLS networks (Ether); thus being able to provide integrated services at layers 1-3 to the research community.

6 Objective 3: Marketplace for resource trading 6 Innovate in the business model used in services based on IaaS, establishing a marketplace where all Infrastructure Providers can publish their available resources with their usage conditions (SLA, price), and all customers can automatically negotiate the SLAs getting the best resource combination for their needs. Objective 4: Carbon-neutral e-Infrastructures Use Mantychore services to contribute to the research performed in the GreenStar Network (GSN) project to enable carbon-neutral infrastructures. Objective 5: Commercial Exploitation Evaluate the likelihood of Mantychore services (open source based) in a commercial telco environment and elaborate a business plan focused on this service for telco operators.

7 Work Packages WP1: Project Management WP2: Dissemination, exploitation, standardisation and liaisons WP3: Consolidating the User Community and users training WP4: Software refinement WP5: IP Networks as a Service for virtual research communities WP6: Infrastructure resources marketplace WP7: Zero-carbon emissions virtual infrastructure

8 WP1 Objectives i2CAT Manage and coordinate all the activities of the project including financial and technical issues. Report on progress, planning, deliverables, etc. Ensure that project objectives are achieved. Be the contact point to the Commission.

9 Work Packages WP1: Project Management WP2: Dissemination, exploitation, standardisation and liaisons WP3: Consolidating the User Community and users training WP4: Software refinement WP5: IP Networks as a Service for virtual research communities WP6: Infrastructure resources marketplace WP7: Zero-carbon emissions virtual infrastructure

10 WP2 Objectives (1/2) HEAnet Disseminate studies, results and evaluations reports about the deployment of IP Network as a Service in NREN environment and further. Publicate tools, presentations at scientific conferences, workshops, demonstrations at specific academic events, and so on. Convince and mobilise the research community about the benefits of IP Networks as a Service

11 WP2 Objectives (2/2) HEAnet Disseminate exploitation plans of each partner including joint marketing plans Contribute to standard bodies (for instance: OGF, IRTF-NRVG and TMF) relevant to IaaS framework Propose extensions or enhancements of emerging standards to support the IaaS framework. Liaise with related initiatives (GN3, FEDERICAII, etc.)

12 Work Packages WP1: Project Management WP2: Dissemination, exploitation, standardisation and liaisons WP3: Consolidating the User Community and users training WP4: Software refinement WP5: IP Networks as a Service for virtual research communities WP6: Infrastructure resources marketplace WP7: Zero-carbon emissions virtual infrastructure

13 WP3 Objectives NORDUnet Represent initially three User Communities from a wide range of users of research, health and education networks. Extend during lifetime of the project. Consolidate the User Community and expand the use of IP Networks as a Service. – Extend the contacts with existing user organisations and projects – Provide the necessary knowledge to users for achieving their needs – Search for new NRENs Provide training for NRENs and the User Community

14 Work Packages WP1: Project Management WP2: Dissemination, exploitation, standardisation and liaisons WP3: Consolidating the User Community and users training WP4: Software refinement WP5: IP Networks as a Service for virtual research communities WP6: Infrastructure resources marketplace WP7: Zero-carbon emissions virtual infrastructure

15 WP4 Objectives i2CAT Analyse the user requirements (from NRENs and virtual research communities). Some requirements: – allow users to configure and manage any type of network (incl. L1, L2 and L3). – improve the interface for the end users, so that it is as simple and usable as possible. Implement the use user requirements and support during the pre-operational phase

16 Software Architecture In-band & out-of-band management channel Chassis support: – Ethernet, loopback, logical tunnel interfaces. – IP (v4 & v6) Routing support – Static routes – Dynamic protocols (RIP, OSPF, BGP) Logical Routers Juniper support – Junos 10.1 Cisco and software routers on the roadmap.

17 Work Packages WP1: Project Management WP2: Dissemination, exploitation, standardisation and liaisons WP3: Consolidating the User Community and users training WP4: Software refinement WP5: IP Networks as a Service for virtual research communities WP6: Infrastructure resources marketplace WP7: Zero-carbon emissions virtual infrastructure

18 WP5 Objectives NORDUnet Deploy the Mantychore services in an operational environment Define management procedures so that users, even though they are the ones using the infrastructure, do not have to deal with the problem of troubleshooting the network. Perform a study to analyse the feasibility of Mantychore services in a commercial environment, taking into account technical as well as business parameters.

19 Work Packages WP1: Project Management WP2: Dissemination, exploitation, standardisation and liaisons WP3: Consolidating the User Community and users training WP4: Software refinement WP5: IP Networks as a Service for virtual research communities WP6: Infrastructure resources marketplace WP7: Zero-carbon emissions virtual infrastructure

20 WP5 Objectives University of Essex Perform a set of studies about how the resources will be published, how the customers will submit the requests and how the resources will be allocated on the customers. Simulate the Mantychore marketplace and the study its scalability.

22 WP7 Objectives HEAnet MANTYCHORE-GSN collaboration has the objective to design necessary experiments and tests which eventually check the viability of the movement of services (virtual machines (VMs and applications) using flexible device configuration utilities such as Infrastructure as a Service and Bandwidth on Demand solutions. Perform the integration between GSN and MANTYCHORE (physical integration between the GSN and the NRENs infrastructure and also the services integration).

23 Watch this space Project has just started – Defining the basics (open mailing lists) – Gathering user requirements – MoU with the GreenStar Network project You will hear more form us!
