Fulfilling the promise of NFV with reconfigurable computing
January 31, 2019 / Daniel Proch
With so many new technologies vying for attention, it can be difficult for CISOs to know which ones merit attention. Will this solution save time? Will it make our organisation more productive, or enable us to do things we couldn’t otherwise do? These questions need to be considered before adopting software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualisation (NFV).What makes these technologies appealing is their ability to separate software from hardware, which eschews the vendor lock-in that has been the norm. So then, the main question is not about budget but about an organisation’s ability to overcome the challenges of these methods so organisations can realise their full value.
