VNF - virtualized network function

Network Functions Virtualization, or NFV, is a network architecture philosophy that utilizes virtualization technologies to manage core networking functions via software as opposed to having to rely on hardware to handle these functions. The NFV concept is based on building blocks of virtualized network functions, or VNFs, that can be combined to create full-scale networking communication services.
In Network Functions Virtualization, virtualized network functions handle specific network functions that run in one or more virtual machines on top of the hardware networking infrastructure (both wired and wireless) such as routers, switches, servers or cloud computing systems.

Examples of the types of networking functions that can be managed by NFV include network security and firewalls, network address translation (NAT), domain name services (DNS), caching, intrusion detection and more.
