Aruba COO Vishal Lall On As A Service And Growing Aruba Into A $5 Billion Business Amid A Global Pandemic
Aruba‘s COO speaks with CRN about the company’s focus on flexible consumption models, Silver Peak integration plans, and scaling the business to hit the next milestone—$5 billion.
How is the integration planning for the addition of Silver Peak going?
That acquisition closes sometime later this month. We are in an integration planning phase right now and we are still hands-off—we are operating as two separate companies. We are talking now more about what happens after we close [and] it‘s going really well. The teams are very excited every time we meet, and I think the culture fit is fantastic.
Their [SD-WAN] product is one of the leaders in the [Gartner Magic Quadrant]. We will see a lot of synergies from a revenue perspective. We are excited about this and their performance during COVID has been very strong. I‘m really looking forward to the close in a few weeks’ time.
