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…




George Caraker and Kennedy/Jenks – A Lifetime of Right Technology Choices

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…




Architecture Matters – With SD-WAN the outcome of the Net Neutrality debate ceases to matter

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…

Nine of the biggest trends for the SD-WAN market for 2016 are:  The net neutrality debate doesn’t go away and, it won’t matter – The net neutrality fight was all over the news in 2015. 2016 won’t be any different. If you don’t know, the net neutrality fight is about whether companies or customers will be granted a faster lane for bandwidth hungry web-based services and applications. Until SD-WAN (a network overlay technology) showed up on the scene companies had two choices; buy a fast private line, or risk unacceptable performance using public broadband. Now with SD-WAN they can get…
