Abstract
In this demonstration, we present dynamic allocation of accelerator resources to SSH tunnels in an NFV environment. In order to accelerate a VNF, its compute-intensive operations are offloaded to hardware cores running on an FPGA. The CPU utilization information of VNFs is continuously processed by a service management component to dynamically decide the suitable target to run VNF's crypto-operations. We also demonstrate switching between the non-accelerated and hardware-accelerated SSH-tunnels triggered by a change in the nature of the data traffic flowing through the tunnel and indicate throughput gains obtainable in dynamically switching contexts.
