I think it’s rare when you find someone who has an uncanny instinct for identifying and implementing new, transformative technology advances; at the right time. George Caraker, Director of IT at VeloCloud customer Kennedy/Jenks is one of those people – an “early adopter” in the truest sense of the word. While a few risk takers bet on technologies barely out of the labs, many people hop on a technology’s bandwagon after a long time. Geoffrey Moore, author of the famous book and concept, Crossing the Chasm,  classifies them as  the conservative majority, and some as laggards. But adopting technologies at…

Throughout living memory humankind has craved independence. As the 4th of July rolls around once again, IT managers still salivate over the seemingly ever-receding promise of liberation—straining against the chains of antiquated and static network architecture and infrastructure, CPE lock-ins, best-effort Internet links performing with substandard packet loss rates, and highly complex VPN tunneling barely achieving adequate security. Not to mention the necessity for bandwidth overprovisioning to ensure decent throughput, session and flow-based routing, backhauling SaaS traffic through a data center that doesn’t host the application any longer just because that is how the pipes have always been connected and…

The debate over Net Neutrality has been raging for years. There are many facets to it. To recap the essence of the debate, Wikipedia defines Net Neutrality as “the principle that all Internet traffic should be treated equally.” One of the fundamental issues being debated is that of giving preferential—or discriminatory, depending on your viewpoint—treatment of traffic with certain attributes, such as protocol, content, application. The fear is that non-neutrality will discriminate against the average Joe and favor behemoth companies with deep pockets and long arms. This is all vaguely disingenuous, because traffic in the Internet, or any other communications…

Recently we held our first VeloCloud Registered Partner Summit kickoff event here in Silicon Valley. This was something we felt we needed to do given our explosive growth in customers and partners and our global registered partner list doubling every six months. Simply put, VeloCloud saw an opportunity. While we are excited to bring on new partners to help provide both geographic and vertical market coverage, at the same time it’s important to bring our partners together to learn, share experiences and build relationships with VeloCloud and one another. The summit also lent itself to a more efficient way to…

In a year-end post by our fearless leader and my fellow co-founder, Sanjay Uppal, our company motto was affirmed “Learn fast.” I have thought a lot about this motto and I must agree, as one of VeloCloud’s co-founders, that we certainly did and do “learn fast.” Better yet, I know the tireless and bright (pun intended) engineers here have learned fast and that has everything to do with their success. What’s the famous saying, “It’s not bragging if you can back it up.” – Mohammed Ali.  Here’s the back up (the truth of how we do what we do): Firstly,…
