ALgorithms for Embedding of VIrtual Networks (ALEVIN) is a framework to develop, compare, and analyze virtual network embedding algorithms.


* Alevin 2.2 released; notable news:

  • implementation of a new algorithm: DPVNE (1, 2)
  • Added support for online simulation
  • GraphML/GML exporters/importers available

* A simulation toolkit for NFV orchestration has been released which is based on ALEVIN
