Senior Technical Marketing Engineer - SD-WAN VeloCloud
Palo Alto, CaliforniaJob ID R1905669 Date posted May. 15, 2019
VMware's VeloCloud is solving IT’s problem of cost effectively provisioning branch, SMB and mobile users with both high performance and controlled access to Public and Private Cloud Applications. As applications and services migrate from local sites and data centers to the cloud, access over fixed and mobile broadband becomes critical. Existing solutions are suited for larger, IT supported sites accessing enterprise data centers over private, dedicated networks. VeloCloud will disrupt the extended enterprise infrastructure market – unlike conventional solutions that require complex branch and data center boxes. We see VeloCloud becoming the programmable on-ramp and platform for cloud delivered services and applications. Velocloud is an early-stage startup with offices in Silicon Valley and Chennai, India, and funding from a top 5 Silicon Valley venture fund in the networking arena. Our founding team consists of serial entrepreneurs who have numerous successes under their belts and enjoy working in small, fast moving teams with ambitious goals.
