Cisco's Embrace of OpenStack Pays Network Dividends [VIDEO]

Cisco cloud computing CTO Lew Tucker discusses how NFV and OpenStack come together.

When Lew Tucker, vice-president and CTO of cloud computing at Cisco, first got Cisco involved with OpenStack, networking wasn't even a separate project. It was just part of the Nova compute project. OpenStack has since evolved with the Neutron networking project and, more recently, a large focus on Network Function Virtualization (NFV) with some of the world's largest carriers supporting the effort.

In a video interview, Tucker details how OpenStack networking has evolved and what it means for Cisco.
