Alkira was founded in 2018 by Amir and Atif Khan, the visionary computer networking team that created the multi-billion-dollar SD-WAN market with the founding of Viptela. After Viptela was acquired by Cisco in 2017, it was time to look for another significant customer problem to solve.
Funded in six weeks from inception by top tier venture capital firms Sequoia, Kleiner Perkins, and GV (formerly Google Ventures), Alkira has reinvented networking for the cloud by delivering the Alkira Cloud Services Exchange™, the first unified multi-cloud network with integrated services, visibility, and governance, all delivered as-a-service.
“Alkira” is from the Australian Aboriginal for “blue sky,” and according to some sources, “a happy place in the sun.” We named our company with an awareness of a fresh start, coupled with real “blue sky” levels of innovation and vision.
Our vision is nothing short of the complete reinvention of cloud networking. A vision of a multi-cloud network that lives in the cloud, behaves like the cloud and is consumed as-a-service like the cloud.
A multi-cloud network that can take you to and across clouds in minutes instead of months. A network where services, like firewalls, live and scale in the cloud. A network you draw instead of build. A network delivered as a service.
Welcome to the future of cloud networking. Welcome to Alkira.
