Five years ago, my fellow co-founders, Ajit Mayya and Steve Woo, and I had a vision to create a company that was not only innovative, industry-transforming, and market-leading, but was supported by a team of smart, fast-learning and fun individuals. I am both proud and humbled to say that today VeloCloud Networks, the company we created, has graduated to the next step in its growth. On November 1, 2017, VeloCloud celebrated its fifth birthday, and the next day, November 2, VMware announced its intent to acquire us. Over the last six weeks, both the VMware team and the VeloCloud team…

In the last ten years, the profile of what network traffic looks like has completely changed from the ten years before that. The internet of things (IoT), the variance and number of connected devices, video, images, voice, credit card data and payments processing, wifi, and much more has changed the requirements of what networks must support today. To add to the wide variation in what traverses the network in any given second of any day is the general importance of all of this traffic. It is not all the same and cannot be treated as such. But in many instances,…

Every network must route traffic – whether it’s voice, video, data or more. That’s a given. Because of this, routers became a staple of legacy infrastructures, with every location in the network using one and heavily depending on its capabilities to keep the business functional. BUT routing is not a function that can only be performed by routers.

And to take it one…

It’s no secret that networks are complex and demand constant care and attention to ensure that they remain functional and operational. The number of applications and services supported by a corporate network incrementally add complexity and, in the absence of processes or solutions that simplify its management, organizations tend to throw people at the problem. But there is a better way. With Outcome-Driven Networking, organizations are changing the way that networks are managed and maintained. It introduces a level of intelligence, learning, and automation that has not been present before, streamlining and aggregating activities into a single-click. Using Outcome-Driven Networking,…

Losing Internet connectivity can easily debilitate a business, but imagine if that downed connectivity spans entire geographic areas. Retail organizations lose the ability to transact. Corporations are unable to send emails or make VoIP calls. Cloud-dependent applications can not be accessed. For the period of time that the Internet is down, everything comes to a screeching halt and the financial impact to the business increases.  On November 6, Level 3, an enterprise ISP backbone used by Internet providers such as AT&T, Comcast, RCN, and Verizon, was offline for 90 minutes. This caused panic and impacted individual and business’ livelihood, all…
