NFV Startup Versa Exiting Worst Stealth Ever

Versa Networks, probably the least secret stealth company ever, is due to formally uncloak in the coming weeks.

Not that Versa Networks has been hiding very well. The company has been a subject of Silicon Valley gossip for years, even presenting and sharing its pitch at SDN and NFV conferences.

Find out more about network functions virtualization on Light Reading's NFV Channel.

What we already know is that Versa is developing software that will run NFV in the cloud -- on customer premises equipment, in central offices, at the data center and anywhere else that future cloud platforms reside. That distributed nature is a major goal for NFV, a step on a path from taking network functions off proprietary appliances to running them on industry-standard servers, to putting them in the cloud and beyond.

We expect Versa will have more to share, of course, and we look forward to telling you more about it.

Until then, review our past Versa coverage to learn more about who they are and what they're up to:

A wealth of stealth Classic cat pic.... and ceratinly Versa has been a very visible 'stealth' company in the past 2 yaers or so.

Any other high profile startups still flying the stealth flag that anyone can identify?
