The Webscale Story

In 2008, James (Jay) Smith wrote a graduate school paper on decentralized resource management. The paper looked at how the cloud could be leveraged to scale out the ADC tier as opposed to scaling it up, giving businesses a right-sized infrastructure when they needed it most. With cloud computing clearly headed into the mainstream, the time was right to turn that paper into a business. By 2011, together with close friend Robert Shires, the first prototype was built, and it worked just as they expected, able to handle failures seamlessly and coordinate distributed resources without thrashing.

By the winter, they started hammering out a business plan and seeking seed funding. After a whirlwind tour of Washington D.C they had secured their first funds and, in January 2012, Webscale was born.

Series A funding was secured by mid-2013, along with the company’s first big customer. Treehouse Brand Stores (now a division of Gamestop), was an e-commerce shop, and their work revealed a significant opportunity for the company to help e-commerce companies get the most out of the cloud.

In 2015, Sonal Puri came on board as CEO to lead the company into its next phase of growth. The company re-located its headquarters to Silicon Valley, with offices in Boulder and in Bangalore, and is continuing on its mission to deliver the world’s first and only integrated web application delivery solution that provides infinite scalability, high performance, security and control in a single, powerful platform.
