Light Reading reports this morning that Kireeti Kompella has left Juniper to join Contrail Systems a new software-defined networking (SDN) startup.
Wauw! I still remember when all the big people left companies like Cisco and moved to Juniper, like Yakov Rekhter. Now it is Juniper’s turn to lose some big names. First David Ward last year, back to Cisco, and now Kireeti Kompella.
I had the opportunity to meet all these people in an SDN conference this year. In my opinion these moves show that the SDN scene is very interesting.
