NFV vs. SDN?
Are there any simple explanations for how NFV compares to SDN? 

Many of the definitons that I have read about SDN seem to define it as being more of a big picture concept and NFV as a component that can optionally be lumped together with SDN.  Would you agree with that?  If not, how might you explain the difference?
