When I basked in the glow of a banner year with record sales for VeloCloud in 2015 I could not imagine how good the first half of 2016 would turn out to be. But here I am with the half-yearly report highlighted by raising $27M in round C to secure our worldwide growth trajectory; receiving both the Cloud computing product of the year award and the IOPN  “Best Service or Solution” award; doubling our partner list and being named a “cool” company by Gartner. I was asked at the end of 2015 what I believed caused VeloCloud’s success and I…

Las Vegas was agog with preparations for the event while networking geeks lined up in the Mandalay Bay convention center to push packets around. Software Defined everything was the buzz at the Interop. The large booths by Cisco, HP, Akamai, VMware, Citrix etc. with their professional story tellers spoke about the wonders of SDN and NFV deployed for the data center and increasingly for the WAN as well. Analytics and Visibility were also…




The End of WAN Trade-offs, Finally!

Today, VeloCloud launches its subscription-based WAN service for enterprises with branch offices, finally ending the unacceptable trade-offs IT has faced between private lines and public broadband Internet links. VeloCloud’s WAN innovation is figuring out how to take advantage of all the inexpensive Internet lines readily available—but that enterprises couldn’t use for business-critical applications that require predictable bandwidth, resilience, and security. What are the branch WAN trade-offs that IT managers face? Until now, enterprises have had only two options for branch-office networking: exclusive use of leased private lines (T1 or, more recently, MPLS) or a mixture of leased lines and ordinary…
