BOULDER -- Stateless, Inc. today announced it has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 10,425,348 for the company’s stateless network functionality.stateless-logo 

The technology enables new levels of automation, greatly simplifies how businesses access remote IT services and uses computing resources more than five times more cost-effectively than traditional approaches, the company said.

The patented technology is exclusively licensed to Stateless and was created by company co-founders, Eric Keller, chief technology officer, and Murad Kablan, chief executive officer, while they were active in research at the University of Colorado Boulder.

“The pace of business is accelerating,” said Kablan. “We are seeing exponential increases in demands for network-based applications and elastic interconnectivity.

“Eric and I recognized the limitations of existing connectivity technologies and developed a new, unique approach that provides the levels of simplicity, flexibility and control that today’s cloud-forward businesses require.”

Today, interconnections are created with devices that use technologies that were originally developed decades ago. Even with recent approaches like NFV, these devices are complex, hard to scale and difficult to adapt to new applications.

“Stateless is unleashing a new era of connectivity through the development of a new architecture for these devices that is driven by our newly patented stateless network functions technology,” said Keller.

“Our new architecture makes interconnecting workloads simple, composable and scalable. Stateless’ modern software enables businesses to place more control of network resources into the hands of the end-user while allowing IT to retain oversight and functional control.”

The new technology is used in the Stateless Luxon software-defined interconnect (SD-IX) platform. Luxon supports broad-ranging applications for data center operators, cloud MSPs, communications carriers and businesses.

“Any organization seeking fast, easy connections, support for thousands of interconnections and the ability to deploy a diverse array of new network services quickly can benefit from Luxon,” said Kablan.
