NFV leverages Cloud Computing principles to move the data-plane network functions from expensive, closed and proprietary hardware to so-called Virtual Network Functions (VNFs). We deal with the management of virtual computing resources (Unikernels) for the execution of VNFs. This functionality is performed by the Virtual Infrastructure Manager (VIM) in the NFV MANagement and Orchestration (MANO) reference architecture. In this data set we report the results of a performance evaluation we have realized of three open source VIMs, namely OpenStack, Nomad and OpenVIM; both considering stock and the tuned versions. The VIMs and the performance evaluation tools that we employ are provided openly and can be downloaded from our repositories (https://github.com/superfluidity/openvim4unikernels and https://github.com/netgroup/vim-tuning-and-eval-tools).
