theCUBE Interviews Saar Gillai, GM NFV, at HP Discover Barcelona


This year’s HP Discover featured a Network Functions Virtualization track and Saar Gillai, GM NFV, was present to discuss the facts and opportunities present in the HP NFV world. A hot topic at Discover this year, we welcome you to learn more about the flexibility, agility, cost savings, and new revenue opportunities NFV offers CSPs by watching Mr. Gillai’s theCUBE interview.


Highlights from interview:

  • Flexibility is key – it is important to create a flexible network capability.
  • The main value is agility – cost reduction is an added bonus.
  • A more nimble infrastructure is needed and HP’s NFV Director provides that. It acts as a wedge between old and new systems.
  • 2015 is the year we will start to see real deployments. (Ex: virtual CPE)
  • NFV is a process and is going to take time.
  • NFV is about being open, which is why HP has an open program. OpenStack is the default to achieve an open platform.
