No hardware to procure, no software to download, and no cloud to learn. Alkira extends your enterprise infrastructure into the cloud and is a trusted solution by leading global enterprises, system integrators and managed service providers.

“Alkira is excited to see how cloud architects and chief transformation officers have embraced the need for a unified network infrastructure as-a-service, proud to be at the forefront of this shift to delivering network services, and honored to have Matt Hoag share Koch’s cloud networking leadership with the ONUG community,” said Amir Khan, President, CEO and founder of Alkira.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has driven home the need for an agile and elastic network infrastructure delivered as-a-service to support the hyper-acceleration of enterprise cloud adoption,” said Nick Lippis, Co-Founder and Co-Chair of ONUG. “The ONUG community embraces innovation and disruption and isn’t afraid to break business models. Network as a Service is now the new norm in enterprise cloud design. Viptela shared its early pioneering vision for SDWAN and customer deployments at ONUG, and we are honored and delighted to again have Amir and Atif Khan share their Alkira Network Cloud offering and Koch deployment with the ONUG Community.”

ONUG is the only forum dedicated to exploring enterprise multi-cloud use case architectures, exciting new innovations, and solutions to challenges facing the enterprise in the cloud arena. The ONUG Fall 2020 virtual event allows individuals and businesses to learn from peers, make informed infrastructure deployment decisions, and generate open discussion between the vendor and user communities. In this way, the event drives the continuation of crucial problem solving in the wake of COVID-19’s widespread industry disruption, serving as a source of value and transformative insight for those in attendance and for the wider IT community.
