Anuta Networks, the industry-first provider of network services virtualization
solutions, today emerged from stealth mode and unveiled its network service
virtualization technology for delivering on-demand, anytime, anywhere network
services for cloud. Founded by Chandu Guntakala, President & CEO, Srini
Beereddy, CTO, and Praveen Vengalam, Vice President of Engineering, Anuta
Networks is focused on the delivery of network services virtualization on
complex, multi-vendor physical and virtual network infrastructures that allow
organizations of all sizes to deliver agile cloud deployments, and laying the
foundation for SDN.

“I've been in the networking industry for about 20 years,” said Jim French,
distinguished system engineer, at Cisco. “In that time, I've spent a majority
of my time helping enterprise customers implement L4-7 services including QoS,
WAN acceleration, firewall, load balancing, and monitoring in support of
business applications. The diverse background gave me an appreciation for the
immense challenge customers have to direct application traffic through the
proper chain of network services while trying to synchronize the appropriate
policies in the service nodes. Virtualization and mobility make it even harder
to provision, operate, and deprovision applications that require network
services. I was very pleased to learn that this long term problem is being
addressed by Anuta Networks taking a multivendor network centric approach.”

The Anuta Networks’ Promise

Anuta Networks' founding team brings extensive experience in solving deeply
complex IT challenges with high expertise in data center, virtualization and
software development. They are:

    Chandu co-founded Jahi Networks, which was acquired by Cisco in 2004,
    co-founded Nipun Net Solutions in 2002 and was responsible for
    establishing the first wireless business partner in South India for Cisco.
    He also founded Austin Chetaks to help promote building healthy
    communities. Chandu devotes time to his Mathruseva Charitable Trust in

    he is a recipient of the Distinguished Alumni award. An avid runner, he
    has participated in marathons in Paris, Chicago, Portland, Austin and San
  *Srini Beereddy – Founder and CTO. Srini brings over 20 years of networking
    experience to Anuta Networks. Prior to co-founding Anuta Networks, he was
    also a co-founder of Jahi Networks, where he served as VP of Engineering.
    Srini worked at Cisco as a Technical Leader and Engineering Manager
    following the Jahi Networks acquisition. His earlier roles include senior
    technical positions at Intel and Trillium, where he served as a Senior
    Architect. Srini received an MS in Computer Automation from IIT Kharagpur,
    India, and holds several patents in networking.

    Science. Praveen also holds several patents in networking.

“Anuta Networks’ network service virtualization solution delivers on the
promise of cloud computing, empowering all enterprises to rapidly embrace the
cloud services model for increased business agility,” said Chandu Guntakala,
founder, president and CEO of Anuta Networks. “We’re confident that Enterprise
and Service Provider customers developing public and private infrastructures
can now deliver a better cloud with faster time-to-market, simplified
operations and improved productivity.”

The Anuta Networks Solution

The breakthrough Anuta Networks nCloudX platform simplifies and automates the
complete lifecycle of network services in complex, heterogeneous networks
across multi-vendor, multi-hypervisor and multi-device, including physical and
virtual infrastructures in both private and public cloud deployments. The
solution reduces delivery time from weeks to a few hours for deploying
multi-tenant network and services, through visual dynamic service designer and
efficient software automation, on top of a combination of the existing
hardware-controlled networks and the new generation of SDN technologies.

“Server virtualization and cloud demand that network operations become more
agile and reduce the time required to provision network resources for a new VM
from weeks to minutes,” said Joe Skorupa, vice president and distinguished
analyst, Gartner. “With more than $40 billion of non-SDN compatible installed
base, there is a potential for significant organization disruption.”
