Twitter Zen Caption on the photo made me laugh and of course I had to click on his Twitter page...it's, um, quite minimalist to put it in hipster terms. Maybe Morgan is only active on Google+?

New Startup An update: We know what Volterra is doing, in general. Singla contacted us shortly after the story posted, to say that Volterra closed a round of funding. They're now disclosing that the company is in the edge computing space -- so now, we at least have a genre to assign them to. Hoping to get more details shortly.

Contrail is exhaust vapor The brain trust has left the Contrail team. Soon Dollard will find out why. Contrail had the advantage of having distributed controllers to increase scale but it didn't do DCI to  take advantage of that until much later. The security that they anounced is just network segmentation that VMware NSX has had since the beginning. Open Contrail was an attempt to exend the reach in to the open source community but it didn't catch on. It's too bad that Juniper didn't know how to market Contrail. They are now an also ran. Dollard will be knocking on Google's door in a year asking to be let back in.
