As the public cloud is widely used in various verticals, network topology and feature requirements become increasingly complex. The basic VPC network functions such as virtual switch, virtual router, and NAT cannot fully satisfy the needs of large enterprises who still keep a vast on-premise network. They need 3 rd party VNF to be deployed within the cloud network to offer more customized network capabilities.

This presentation will discuss how a public cloud platform can integrate a 3 rd party VNF solution while adding HA features. NFV HA deployment is achieved by using the standard template on Alibaba Cloud marketplace. With the template, users can build the best practices to realize HAVIP, ECMP and private-link network functions.

Additionally, I will discuss how to support the VNF service chain deployment in public cloud. I will talk about the difference between two typical ways to build service chain, PBR (Policy base Routing) and Source Routing (Standard SFC). I will also introduce the cloud-based segment routing mechanism and its source routing service chain model, which simplifies the traffic orchestration of cloud NFVs.
