Take Charge of the Cloud Platform for NFV

Posted by Mae Kowalke on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 with No comments

How should operators acquiring multiple cloud platforms plan for convergence of those platforms in future? In a recent white paper, Heavy Reading explores that question, with a focus on the benefits of a "cloud first" approach to Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), where operators take VNFs straight to the cloud.


Heavy Reading predicts this approach, referred to as a horizontal cloud, makes it possible to run many NFVs from different vendors and therefore delivers the greatest transformation. 

What do you think of the horizontal cloud approach for converging cloud platforms?
