Saar Gillai on NFV – HP's New GM of NFV



Saar Gillai, interviewed here, recently took the helm of HP's NFV business – in addition to continuing his role as COO of HP Cloud. With extensive experience in both networking and cloud and a track record of successfully building innovative products and businesses from inception to multi-billion dollar operations, he has the right background for the job.


Gillai explained why he thinks this is an exciting time to be involved in NFV, "You don’t have to push hard to explain to carriers the benefits of NFV to both the bottom and top line. They know that they need a better way to compete in the social/mobile/connected world. They need to better leverage Capex and Opex, and they need to roll out services faster."


Gillai continued, "I feel fortunate to join the HP NFV team at this time. HP is experiencing considerable momentum in NFV with 20 proof of concept projects around the world and HP OpenNFV Labs open and operational in Israel, EMEA, Asia and the US."


He has the following message for communications service providers (CSPs),"Moving to a cloud-enabled carrier network with NFV can be more than a cost saving initiative. This cloud-based network is where the future revenues and growth of the CSPs will reside.   NFV provides a certain path for the CSP’s journey to the cloud. Our interest is to make this path as efficient as possible -- I won’t say ‘easy’ as there is work to do. But our job as a trusted partner is to be flexible and remove the barriers on this NFV journey."
