Today’s episode features an interview between Matt Trifiro and Galeal Zino, CEO and Founder of NetFoundry.
Galeal has been a founder and executive for the past 15 years, leading teams that developed the world’s largest VoIP network and built global voice and video communications services.
In this interview, Galeal discusses NetFoundry’s mission to enable innovation, the importance of zero trust networking, his views on the future of edge technology, and much more.
“At the base layer, NetFoundry enables innovation. Networking gets in the way of innovation. I’ve been doing it 20 years, and it’s difficult, but we take the networking headache out of the equation. “
“If we try to look at edge in a vacuum, like ‘I’m just going to do all my edge computing in the corner of my store-‘ that’s probably not really the right vision. You’re going to have to do a whole lot of compute in other places. Edge data centers, core cloud, et cetera. It really is a continuum.”
“The edge is becoming part of the internet…some of the really awesome innovations that are happening on the device or user side of the network– autonomous cars, robotics, IOT devices– the power of those innovations is unlocked when it connects to the rest of the innovations that are happening at the cloud”
The featured sponsor of this episode of Over the Edge is NetFoundry. What do IoT apps, edge compute and edge data centers have in common? They need simple, secure networking. Unfortunately, SD-WAN and VPN are square pegs in round holes. NetFoundry solves the headache, providing software-only, zero trust networking, embeddable in any device or app. Go to NetFoundry.io to learn more.
