Why I Believe VeloCloud Won Awards, Recognition, Partners and Customers in 2015

All in all, and by any measure, it’s been a successful and interesting year for VeloCloud. Every CEO wishes for industry awards (12 in 2015), and more importantly, customers (over 100 in 2015) and partners (over 30 in 2015). However, if you ask what caused this success in 2015 it comes down to two key things, “simplicity” and “affordability.”

You could make the argument that the WAN market is now ready for SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Networking). You could also make the argument that perhaps having a simple and affordable WAN alternative like VeloCloud’s SD-WAN solution has helped to make the market ready.

Whatever the case, the industry and enterprise IT managers and service providers alike have taken notice of VeloCloud. Our SD-WAN solution uniquely uses the cloud and sophisticated orchestration technology together to provide businesses the ability to get private business line performance using one or more links including public broadband services, all at a fraction of the cost. And for these reasons VeloCloud can boast this list of 2015 accomplishments:

New Customers

  • Vonage announced plans to launch Vonage® SmartWAN powered by VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) technology, which further optimizes reliability and Quality of Service (QoS) for unified communications.
  • Enabling Freewire to expand from regional to nationwide operations while offering their customers nearly instant branch-office WAN setup and configuration, and addressing one of the most challenging connectivity problems enterprises face.
  • Enabled Equinix to leverage SD-WAN as a cost-effective option for connecting to their performance hubs.
  • Acclaim from diverse set of customers with several public case studies and video testimonials.

Awards and Recognition


Other Cool Things

There are a lot of constituents to thank for these results – the customers and partners themselves, our rockstar investors and advisors, and last but certainly not the least, the VeloCloud team. With my co-founders I strived to build a work environment with one underlying theme – “Learn Fast,” while trusting each other and having fun. I could not have asked for a better group of folks to be along for the ride. Our motto for 2016? The future’s so bright we gotta wear shades!
