OpenStack & Beyond Podcast – Episode 8 | Live From Mobile World Congress Talking NFV

Mobile World Congress was a whirlwind event this year and there was no shortage of NFV interest and talk throughout the 4-day conference. The OpenStack & Beyond team made sure to get in on the action by hosting a live episode straight from the floor (well, in a meeting room).
Hosted by Nati Shalom, we had an all-star panel this episode, including participants from Intel, VMware, Metaswitch, and GigaSpaces. They all had very interesting viewpoints on the growth and maturity of NFV in the marketplace. The discussion covered topics ranging from issues of vendor lock-in to microservices and DevOps to the varying approaches of implementing NFV.
We hope you enjoy this fantastic episode, which inludes our esteemed panelists:
