BOULDER, Colo. — Stateless Inc. appointed Michael Anderson as vice president of marketing. With more than 25 years of experience within the networking industry, Anderson will focus on accelerating adoption of Stateless’ Luxon platform and boosting awareness of the network. 

“Mike Anderson’s exceptional combination of creativity, networking expertise, and proven ability to assist in building successful companies make him a great asset to our team,” said Murad Kablan, CEO, Stateless. “With the increase in cloud-based services, the emergence of IoT and 5G connectivity, and industrywide adoption of DevOps initiatives, companies are starting to recognize the value that software-defined interconnect (SD-IX) can bring to networks. Mike’s experience and demonstrated ability to socialize new technologies will help position Luxon as the leading network platform for providers to use to deploy their own custom network applications, no matter how complex.”

Anderson’s networking industry experience includes roles in engineering, operations, product, and marketing. With proficiency in accelerating growth for both emerging and large organizations, he has worked with multiple networking startup companies and has held positions with communications providers, telecom equipment manufacturers, software vendors, and data center operators. Prior to joining Stateless, Anderson was the vice president of marketing at Flexential. 

“Stateless has innovative technology, a great team, and a phenomenal market opportunity,” said Anderson. “The Stateless platform is designed to expose the power of the network in ways that exceed what most people can even imagine. I believe the company can change networking in the same way that virtualization transformed computing. I am excited to join the Stateless team and to help transform the way networks are built and optimized.”   

Stateless has developed an SD-IX platform that gives cloud, colocation, and data center providers the ability to build new networking products to move data between data centers, tenant sites, and hyperscale clouds.

“With SD-IX, Stateless is taking a completely different approach to networking versus its competitors,” added Anderson. “Just like cloud computing has allowed access to computing in previously unfathomable ways, Stateless is unleashing the power of the network.”
