By running network functions as software on commodity servers instead of on expensive dedicated hardware middle-boxes, network function virtualization (NFV) offers many benefits. It provides flexible control and management of network functions (NFs), and it lowers network management and deployment costs. In particular, NFV makes it easier and cheaper to scale out to meet growing traffic demands by deploying NF instances on more CPU cores, hence has been widely touted as the future of networking.
