NFV’s GM, Saar Gillai, Interviewed at HP Discover 2014


It’s HP Discover time in Barcelona and NFV is a hot topic. In this interview, GM NFV, Saar Gillai, is asked about NFV strategy.



  • Communication Service Providers (CSPs) need an open and flexible program.
  • HP has an open NFV strategy. NFV is complex with many different components.
  • NFV is about the cloudification of the network. This move needs to be from specific to flexible – which is why HP chose Helion OpenStack as their platform.
  • NFV deployments are more important than standards. Documents are important, but this year HP focused on “show me”. This show and tell includes moving from paper to practice, from PoCs to real deployments.
  • HP is excited about the future of NFV. It is an amazing opportunity for them and their customers.
