Vyatta In High Gear
“You hang out with smart people, you get smart friends.”
– Rocky Balboa
Anyone who reads this blog knows why they’re reading it. They don’t need their advanced perspectives to be validated. That said…
The news broke this week that Vyatta received a significant financing round from an investment firm comprised of operating executives who know a thing or two about networking, infrastructure and technology disruptions.
This is fantastic news at a fantastic time. Things are moving so fast for Vyatta & Friends that it’s starting to blur together. In the span of 2011 alone Vyatta has substantially spread its wings, including:
+ First major clouds announcing adoption of Vyatta (Dell, Carpathia, DinCloud)
+ Continued Enterprise adoption (Boeing, EMC, Honeywell, CBS, Toyota)
+ Our one millionth download of the Vyatta Network OS
+ International distribution partners Zycko (Europe) and CTC-Itochu (Japan)
+ Playing a key part of the live network at InterOp
+ Crossing over the 1,000 customer mark
+ Winning even more industry awards
+ Advancements in multi-platform environment suport (Red Hat KVM, Amazon)
+ World-class executive additions
… and that’s just some of the high points.
2012 will be the year virtual networking explodes in adoption. The data points are all over the map. It started by looking like a jungle out there… then a dirt road emerged. Now there is nothing but highway in front of us, and Vyatta is shifting into high gear.
We continue to be awed by the power of the Vyatta Community that is at the root of our inexorable drive. Right now there are over 300,000 registered members worldwide. Vyatta Users groups continue to spring up around the world (Poland, Latin America, Japan) and the Vyatta Japan Users Group published their first book on Vyatta this year. The Vyatta Network OS has been downloaded by over 50% of the Fortune 500 and running in datacenters around the globe. It’s amazing to watch.
There’s more to do, but we’re all in the right place at the right time. Viva Vyatta!
