In the last decades, there has been a tremendous evolution in the traffic on the Internet and enterprises networks and an ever increasing demand of devices that require connectivity. These trends resulted in increased network complexity, leading to difficult management and high costs. Emerging technologies such as Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) seem to be promising solutions to those problems. No standardized solutions, nor how to properly combine their usage to achieve flexible and proactive control management have been discovered yet.

In this talk, I will discuss insights on several aspects of network virtualization, starting from virtual network performance of cloud computing infrastructure, and introducing two different network service management mechanisms: the Service Function Chaining and the Controller Migration, discussing their analysis, design and implementation, as well as some preliminary results and ongoing research.
