In this new era of connectivity, computer networks now have a greater strategic and economic impact than ever. Existing physical and virtual network appliances are extremely complex and are failing to meet the demands of data centers and their customers to have simple, scalable, and evolvable connectivity solutions. Stateless’ mission is to make network connectivity simple. It was founded by Murad Kablan and Eric Keller in 2017 as a spinoff of their PhD research. Stateless software platform enables data center operators to easily define and build a portfolio of elegant network connectivity solutions that can be cost effectively productized and operationalized at scale. Stateless is proudly based in Boulder, Colorado. Murad Kablan describes in layman’s terms how it all works. He also explains some of the triumphs and pitfalls of starting a new business.
