Alkira has created an on demand cloud area networking enabling customers to easily self-provision a network and security edge directly adjacent to Cloud and SaaS resources within minutes. This can be done for the first time by someone with little to no cloud expertise, and can be consumed in a pay-as-you-go model which customers are demanding today. There are so many customer use cases and the timing couldn’t be better.

Coevolve provides telco-independent SD-WAN and cloud networking solutions offerings to our global clients in more than 65 countries. Businesses today are excited about the promise of the cloud, but frustrated by their journey to the cloud. Alkira provides a transformative on demand, global multi-cloud network, delivered as-a-service, which simplifies the journey, and offers our clients the competitive edge they need to compete and grow.
If Alkira has its way, you’ll be able to fire up a secure, global backbone as easily as you start a Zoom call. That’s where the NaaS is taking us.
Founder and Principal Analyst, Futuriom
At EOS we are excited about our partnership with Alkira. The ability to create policies for all your public cloud environments, without having to manually login to each provider, or configure individual firewalls, is amazing. Having a simple and intuitive overlay to take care of routing and policy complexity reduces time, effort and knowledge required to manage your public multi-cloud environment. We can help you design and install an Alkira solution or provide it as a managed service. This leading technology is a great addition to our solution portfolio and our global deployment reach of physical assets into 175 countries worldwide.
Director of Network Architecture, EOS IT Solutions
Alkira is revolutionizing networking by creating the first truly complete cloud area networking platform. The Alkira founders were pioneers of the first wave of virtual networking with SD-WAN. They are tackling the next frontier, multi-cloud, to create the first platform that can enable a company to bring their full network fabric into the modern era.
As enterprises continue to migrate applications to the public IaaS clouds and SaaS environments, the need for an on-demand, elastically scalable, and highly available multi-cloud network is clear. This multi-cloud network must adhere to the same cloud principles and possess the same cloud attributes as the public clouds with which it connects. The Alkira Cloud Services Exchange is well positioned to help enterprise customers mitigate the complexity of deploying and managing multi-cloud networking, including the network and security services that need to run in a unified and consistent manner across those environments.
VP of Research, IDC Corporation
Amir and Atif Khan have an unmatched track record, team, and architecture for Cloud Area Networking, which we believe will be more disruptive than SD-WAN. We see a changing business model as companies recognize the value in moving to a network on demand. In Koch’s case, Alkira’s technology has allowed the company to execute its cloud networking operations in days or just hours from what used to be six to 18 months.
Managing Director, Koch Disruptive Technologies
Networking for the multi-cloud era requires a different approach, and in today’s climate, remote work is breeding a sense of urgency for a unified solution, Alkira’s team has the ambitious vision to disrupt the status quo, and a proven track record building enduring companies. We’re thrilled to partner with them.
Partner, Kleiner Perkins
For a company the size of Koch Industries, it’s important to have an agile, global, end-to-end network. That’s why we’re so excited to not only utilize Alkira, Inc.’s powerful and intuitive cloud network technology in our enterprise but also invest in their talented team.
President, Koch Disruptive Technologies
Our program gives new businesses access to the incredible resources of Microsoft and helps to bring the benefits of exciting new technologies like Alkira’s Cloud Area Networking platform to Microsoft’s Azure customers.

We are partnering with Amir and Atif Khan in their new venture, Alkira, after our successful partnership with them and their prior company, Viptela. Alkira will be a needed tool for enterprises struggling with configuring and running hybrid service connections.
Partner, Sequoia Capital
WWT customers are increasingly shifting workloads to the public cloud and the networking has to adapt quickly as data, services, and endpoints are becoming more distributed across the edge and public cloud locations. At the same time interconnectivity is changing while becoming more complex. In many cases the networking hasn’t kept pace with the rate of innovation. As a result, customers need to manage, adapt, and simplify the networking operations within and across cloud providers. We see Alkira as a strategic disruptor in the space which addresses this real challenge for our customers.
Sr. Director, Network Solutions, World Wide Technology (WWT)
Organizations that are stymied by multi-cloud network connectivity and operations should look at Alkira Cloud Area Networking. Alkira is simplifying the journey, and changing the trajectory to cloud.
Principal Analyst, ZK Research
