Vello Sets Up in UK

MENLO PARK, Calif. -- Vello Systems is establishing a UK division to provide Vello's innovative networking systems to the UK market. Vello's launch in the UK marks the first arrival of a startup focused on software-defined networking systems in the UK. Software-defined networking is set to be the most important innovation in networking in 25 years, holding out the promise of replacing today's complex networking architecture with a simpler, more flexible networking environment that will enable networks to scale in keeping with the massive growth in data affecting enterprises and network operators worldwide.

Vello is a leader in the move to software-defined networks (SDN), a new approach to building large-capacity networks aimed at addressing the problems of the current networking paradigm. Today's networks, based on the IP router as the key element of networking intelligence, involve a multilayered network architecture where every change to the network involves extensive reconfiguration and "rediscovery" of the network. These processes, often involving manual intervention, take up time and resources and have made the network too slow and cumbersome to keep up with rapid changes, particularly those required by server and storage virtualization, two trends that are increasingly dominant within data centers.
