As a resident of New York I am fascinated by the history of this great city. The can-do attitude and swagger of “Gotham” but also the cultural diversity and complexity. As a technologist I am drawn to the mindboggling effort it takes to run an infrastructure necessary to support 8.4 million residents plus 1.5 million daily commuters who travel each day to the city for work. Urban life has always interested me. The photo above is a New York City street corner taken in 1887 only eleven years after Alexander Bell’s first long distance two-way phone call (between Cambridge and Boston). For the next 15 years both electric and telephonic wires would encase the city in an increasingly unorganized, dense web of entanglement. But progress marches forward. Legislation would be passed, money would be raised and the wires were soon moved underground only to be remembered in these old photographs.

Many phrases are significantly overused, and this happens to be one of them.  However, when you step back and look at those that are typically associated, it is a worthy denotation.

My impressions after 1 month at Avi Networks

I am a dyed-in-the-wool startup guy. I enjoy the journey of taking on innovative technologies that address clear customer pain points, growing the opportunity at a fast pace, and disrupting a legacy market that hasn’t seen much change in a long time. I did this at Nutanix, Infoblox, and many other companies before that. But picking the right startup company is not just a question of luck, it requires a few ingredients that can make the difference between success and failure.

As CEO, my job is to listen to customers and understand their concerns. Throughout a decades-long career at Avi Networks and other highly-regarded tech companies, I’ve heard dozens of customers tell me about their challenges in moving to an on-demand, cloud services model. More than once, I’ve heard that the biggest area that gets in their way is the application delivery services model.

We’ve witnessed significant change in the last decade. Today, we operate in a world where mobile devices and cloud environments are the new norm, causing a fundamental shift in application architecture to a microservices model. As a result, traditional application delivery solutions fall short because these solutions were not architected for an environment built for mobility, flexibility and elastic scale.

CLAD_ImageAs an engineer, I know how hard it is to make things simple. I also know that any great solution must begin with a customer-focused mindset, and not one that creates technology for technology's sake.       

At Avi Networks, we’re distinguishing our solutions with a single-minded focus on making things intuitively obvious. If that means adding a few extra weeks to the design cycle to make life easier for the user, we’ll do it. And every idea and conversation here begins by “walking in our customers’ shoes” because it’s essential that we truly understand their needs so we can invent new approaches that guarantee the best customer experience.

I’d like to share with you four stories that give you a glimpse into our thought process, design challenges and engineering priorities as we set out to create the industry’s first cloud application delivery platform.

In the past couple of years, I've had a chance to speak with over 150 customers about our technology and their use cases. These incredible teams, at the front lines of IT, are our partners in innovation. I've learned some surprising things from them, even some that I considered counter-intuitive at the time – but they've helped us build what customers are truly asking for.

As we count down the days to our BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, I want to tell you three short stories that have had a profound impact on what we’re doing.
