Demo Proposal - Distrinet: a Mininet implementation for the Cloud


Networks became so complex and technical that it is now hard if not impossible to model or simulate them. Consequently, more and more researchers rely on prototypes emulated in controlled environments and Mininet is by far the most popular tool. Mininet implements a simple, yet powerful API to define and run network experiments on a single machine. In most cases, running experiments on one machine is adequate but for resource intensive applications one machine may not be sufficient. For that reason we propose Distrinet, a way to distribute Mininet over multiple hosts. Distrinet uses the same API than Mininet, granting full compatibility with Mininet programs. Distrinet is generic and can optimally deploy experiments in Linux clusters or in public clouds and automatically minimizes the resource consumed in the experimental infrastructure.
