After heading up the all-star engineering team that powered multiple Cisco networking breakthroughs, Jain is now leading the charge at Pensando to flat out deliver better performance and security at the edge than rival Amazon Web Services’ Nitro system.
The Pensando technology is aimed at delivering the same game-changing economics and agility that were previously only available from hyperscaler cloud providers like AWS.
The initial engineering results are better than spectacular, with Pensando powering nine times faster performance with lower latency.
Besides engineering chops, Jain brings a deep knowledge of working closely with partners to make blockbuster market transitions. Add it all up and you have a monster channel opportunity with the backing of Hewlett Packard Enterprise—a Pensando investor.
