Introduction

The introduction of cloud computing and virtualization is one of the radical innovations that the industry has witnessed recently. These technologies have allowed the industry to decouple the services from the proprietary hardware and allowed the users to instantiate workflows on any supported compute platforms. Although toolsets such as Linux Containers (LXC) and Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM) were developed to instantiate any workloads as virtual machines, recent developments, such as Docker and Kubernetes, allow the user to develop and instantiate these workloads as containers. Containerizing the applications and network services (NFV) is the goal the industry is moving toward for the agility and efficiency properties.
