Michael Brenner explains that NFV needs an app-centric architecture in the cloud and a 'containerisation' technique is required that can have multiple VNFs inside a container. This 'service container' will need to be highly available, able to be scaled-in or scaled-out and moved from one data centre to another as a single entity, without the need to be worrying about the underlying VNFs.
