Network virtualization is recognized as an enabling technology for the Future Internet that overcomes network ossification. However, it introduces a set of challenges. In any network virtualization environment, the problem of optimally mapping virtual resources to physical resources, known as virtual network embedding (VNE), is a critical challenge. Several algorithms attempting to solve this problem have been proposed in literature, so far. However, comparison of existing and new VNE algorithms is hard, as each algorithm focuses on different criteria. To that end, the VNREAL project introduces ALEVIN, a framework to compare different algorithms according to a set of metrics, easily incorporate new VNE algorithms, and evaluate these algorithms on a given scenario for arbitrary parameters.
