Information is becoming increasingly ubiquitous in our society and the underlying network infrastructure must provide a flexible and efficient way to cope with ever growing demands. The challenge to provide telecom infrastructure with high quality of service levels, competitive cost and low envi- ronmental impact requires new technologies and approaches. SDN and NFV technologies emerge as a solution to these demands, shown new ways to implement dynamic and elastic network services. This paper introduces ElasticNFV, a SDN-based NFV orchestrator capable of performing load balancing in an application oblivious way. Performance analysis results confirm the potential of ElasticNFV to adequately address current telecom infrastructure needs.
