This is an exciting week at the OpenStack Summit in Austin. It’s been another great opportunity to meet, share experiences, and discuss the future of Cloud Computing. One of the most important takeaways is the maturity of the NFV transformation happening in the Service Provider space. It is no longer just talk with many of the world’s leading operators announcing their OpenStack powered NFV projects and deployments during keynotes and breakout sessions.

OpenStack has evolved now to be more mature, making Agility, Flexibility and Cost Reduction a reality, which is why it’s on top of every service providers’ agenda.

Cisco and RedHat presented the Cisco NFV Infrastructure, a joint solution enabling carriers to easily adopt the NFV paradigm shift.

Vijay Venugopal (Director, Product Management NFV, Cisco) and Chris Wright (VP, Chief Technologist, RedHat) discussed the benefits and explained the opportunities of network transformation in a very interesting interview with industry analysts.

Cisco NFV Infrastructure makes it easy for service providers to embrace the network transformation towards virtualization. Further simplifying and automating their NFV operations to deliver applications and services faster and providing them greater levels of business agility.
