The Curtain Goes Up
After two years of silent and hard work, the curtain finally goes up. And it’s as exciting as the premiere of a new show. Being out of stealth means that we can openly discuss what we are doing and confront our views with those of the rest of the industry and of the people that are building the next generation of IT (see how I have not used the word “cloud”, yet).
Before we engage in deeper conversations around Embrane or heleos, allow me to use this post to mention the wonderful team that we have built at Embrane and that has made all of this possible. Embrane is a true Silicon Valley startup, made of passionate people, who are joined by a common vision and desire “to make a dent in the universe”. We are supported by Tier-1 investors, who also share our vision and deserve the credit for having been able to see what was coming in a clearer way than many others. At the same time, we are a team of people with a very strong passion for technology and a belief that there is an opportunity to change how networks are built and how network services are delivered.
Today is not only the day of the Embrane launch; it’s also the 84th anniversary of the birth of Robert Noyce, one of the great innovators of Silicon Valley and the symbol of one of the many shifts that Silicon Valley has gone through in the past. I don’t have the presumption of comparing Embrane to Noyce, but I hope this coincidence might be a good sign for our company and that this date may mark the beginning of another little shift from the world of traditional IT to the future of networking and computing.
