CEO: Kumar Ramachandran

The SD-WAN startup's flagship Instant-On Networks (ION) family of products delivers an application-defined fabric that eliminates the need for hardware routers. In contrast to traditional hybrid-WAN alternatives, ION delivers the cloud without compromising remote offices or the need to rip and replace infrastructure.

CloudGenix CEO Kumar Ramachandran told CRN that the San Jose, Calif.-based company offers the only SD-WAN system that can run on an x86-based platform in the cloud or on premise. The company was founded in 2013 by former Cisco networking executives and emerged from stealth in 2014.

In August, CloudGenix launched its first-ever global partner program, attracting dozens of Cisco channel partners, master agents and cloud application-focused solution providers through its approach to providing proof-of-concept systems, online tools and solutions.
