How are customers using Skyport on the edge?

One is in remote locations. So [we provide] true edge compute that is either consolidating data from manufacturing sites or helping to do analytics closer to where the data is being collected. That's one way, this IoT edge.

The other way customers are using it is to re-platform their DMZs. The DMZ is built with a bunch of messiness and pretty old in most places. We give customers a platform for virtualizing and modernizing their DMZ. Part of the way we do that is there's no management plane, that's all in the cloud – so you don’t have to harden VMWare vCenter or harden any of the management infrastructure to be able to run outside the firewalls. We basically have inside each box a logical 40-GbE firewall, so you don’t need segmentation firewalls, external firewalls – the server itself protects itself and protects the workloads.
