Survey on Survivable Virtual Network Embedding Problem and Solutions
Survivability in networks has always been an important issue and lately becomes for network virtualization. Network virtualization provides to run multiple virtual networks on a shared physical network. Since a failure in the physical network can affect several virtual resources, therefore, the survivability has to be considered in the embedding of the virtual resources. In this paper, the authors present a survey on the survivable virtual network embedding problem and different approaches to solve this problem. The different approaches and algorithms are evaluated on their type of survivability.
