It’s great to have software so attractive that it’s been downloaded half a million times into companies of all shapes and sizes.  It’s an invisible, good-lookin’ attack against the proprietary status quo.

And we just upped the ante with the recent launch of Vyatta Version 6, taking us to the next level in the industry.  Building on Vyatta’s immense scalability (well over 10Gb/s) and extensive capability (there are already ~6,000 commands available from the CLI), Version 6 is focused on the value-adding types of functionality that larger enterprises and clouds require.

That is, after all, where Vyatta downloads have been going… and those customers are moving into production now.  Here are a few new customer names from just the beginning of the year:  EMC, Ciena, Sonus Networks, Enerchem International, Sikorsky, CIC, Fuji/Xerox, US Department of State, Cornell (all hail, alma mater) and University of Michigan.  These are serious networks, and they’re choosing Vyatta.

Now Version 6 gives customers even more reason to love Vyatta.  It still allows the frictionless evaluation cycle of Vyatta Core (download, kick tires, become impressed).  And when you’re ready to put it into production, the Subscription Edition snaps onto Core, adding important features useful for widespread deployment like our new Remote Management API.  Finally, you can access a variety of Plus services that are streamed to each device; we started with URL Filtering, with others like Intrusion Detection right around the corner on our roadmap.

What better way to start off 2010 than with a watershed product release from an exciting, disruptive company.  Stay tuned; there’s more news right around the corner!
