We make networks agile.
Cloud-hosted applications today have scalable storage and computation, but their network functions fail to achieve the same resiliency or elasticity of the cloud as a whole. Stateless changes this by making network functions agile so they can scale seamlessly with minimal failure.
Our network functions are stateless, meaning that they don't carry your data with them. For example, when your firewall crashes, all its state is maintained, meaning we can resume quickly without losing any potentially critical data. This also means your network can scale up—or down.
Stateless is for companies which run a private or hybrid cloud infrastructure. Most of these companies don't have the resources to build network services that are offered by public clouds. Stateless allows you to keep the cost, privacy, and compliance benefits of your private cloud while getting the platform of public cloud technology.
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. This technology has been validated at speeds exceeding 10/GBs per core.
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.
