Actually that would be cool -- walking through the whole process. Just let me dig out from under the stuff I have to get done before the holidays....

Carol,

The knitting is done on the web side via DNS.  The problem is when you deal with non-web services to create a DNS-like function.

So, when I have said this in the past maybe it is better understandable now?  To make an application effective on top of a virtualized infrastructure does not mean that it can now run in a VM.

If you want sometime, I will walk you through the complexities of what we did to build something as simple as a mail filter.  And I don't mean the mail filter part, I mean the whole provisioning and publishing services part.

Re: Does succeed already!
It seems what the telecom industry is facing is that virtualizing functions is easy (realatively) but knitting together virtualized functions into services that can be delivered on-demand and cost competitively is a very different issue. 

And they were already struggling with how to make use of all the policy management options.

Does succeed already!
Carol,

So NFV already exists and is used on the IT side of business.  As I said, I ran a Spam Filtering company and I know Mail Servers are done this way as well.  There are LOTS of other functions (heck we used Virtualized Load Balancers).

I think the issue really is what range of services can it be used in.  My personal view is NFV is valuable when processing happens.  I see no way that a core router gets Virtualized.  But if your function can run on a COTS computer and provide some level of effectiveness, then it might be virtualized.
