What We Do
Today, the entire data center has been virtualized except for network functions. This is the last mile we must cross to achieve full virtualization & this is what Stateless sets out to do.
Networks today suffer from a big box mentality, where supporting more traffic often means just getting a bigger box. This doesn't work. It leads to duplicated work and all-around inefficiencies.
Even modern approaches are falling victim to this—but instead of physical machines, it's virtual ones. You still end up paying with the same pricing model and using the same command line to manage it.
From the Ground Up
While our network functions aren't technically organic, we are completely redesigning them, with agility and ease-of-use as first-order concerns. Stateless breaks away from the old-network paradigm of a fixed set of functions and fixed unit devices. The end result is network services that require zero management, zero prediction, and users experience zero failure.
Current network practice involves a tenant or dev team making a request for a new network service, a change for a service, or a configuration change, and the data center operator performs these tedious tasks. We eliminate this step entirely via automated provisioning that is tied directly to user request.
Better Performance for Less
Stateless is 4-10x more cost efficient than the VM firewall offerings on the market today.
User interviews conducted by Stateless show that changing licenses and scaling is highly disruptive for business. Because Stateless can scale up or down depending on your usage with no disruption, we can provide a true pay-as-you-go model. Our analysis of 100 different scenarios of traffic and tenant mixes shows that Stateless is 4-10x more cost efficient.
To attain resilience, current practices revolve around deploying two devices that synchronize with each other, one being active and the other being a backup. This leads to extra costs for the sake of safety.
Stateless, however, uses a pool of resources which are leveraged upon failure. Beyond being cost-effective, this approach is more resilient, allowing for complete seamlessness in your networks. You pay less for a safer system.
