Re: Startup Dashboard Tracker Yea, this will be really cool. VC's would love this. I couldn't find anything similar on the interwebs. LR is good but needs more interactive type visuals.

Re: Startup Dashboard Tracker That's a great idea. We frequently do top 10 lists of startups to watch in different spaces, but I like the idea of an updateable, trackable startup watch. We'll see what we can do...

Re: Startup Dashboard Tracker I would add to that a) revenues, and b) customers.

Startup Dashboard Tracker Sarah, the number of startups makes my head spin. I propose a new page on LR, like a dashboard or dynamic infographic of startups to track them visually and show progress (or lack of progress). This would really help summarize it one place to go back and reference old articles, status, etc. I think this would help see where they overlap or differentiate.

Some things to track:

Name / Company Logo

Technology / Products

Date / Location

$$ Funding

## Employees

Link to site, news, etc.

Re: Good Idea but easy to top They are definitely targeting the enterprise and made it clear it's different than carrier SDN. I'm a little unclear about the L4 functionality as his response there was vague: "locating services optimally based on costs and traffic patterns." They work on Cisco routers, but also expect this to be very disruptive to Cisco.

sounds promising I saw it pointed out in another article on CloudGenix that it's actually solving a problem that needs solving, unlike a lot of other SDN startups coming out now. That's obviously an important factor. It seems like it's making some big promises, but I'm impressed with its customer roster already. Will be interesting to hear more from Coca-Cola and others on how it's working for them.

Good Idea but easy to top There's benefit to virtualizing WAN type functions which I'm going to assume is WAN L2/3 connectivity as well as some of the NFV like firewall and load balancing.  My question would be what will make them stand out in the crowd; first details on the features that they'll offer and how they won't be topped by Cisco, Alcatel-Lucent, Juniper, etc.  It does sound like they are targeting enterprise, so maybe a range of scale on the devices, remote branch devices?

Did you get a different feeling from them?
