The 10 Coolest Networking Startups Of 2014 (So Far)


VeloCloud

CEO: Sanjay Uppal

VeloCloud is looking to "reinvent" traditional wide area networks (WANs) by leveraging cloud and virtualization -- a vision that helped it nab $21 million in investor funding this June.

According to VeloCloud, its cloud-based WAN architecture drives a cost reduction of between 60 percent and 85 percent compared to traditional WAN architectures, where services are delivered, piece-by-piece, on hardware appliances. The company was founded in 2012 by Ajit Mayya, the former Senior Director of Engineering at VMware; former Citrix Systems Vice President Sanjay Uppal; and Steve Woo, the former Senior Director of Product Management at Aerohive.
