In last week’s post, we discussed what cloud-native really means. It has to be more than just using VMs to run code in the cloud or containers on switches. That does not make the software cloud-native. We pointed out that customers are realizing that it undermines their ability to get the benefits from the cloud.
From the beginning, Volta has taken a different approach to build our platform. First, we completely disaggregated the control plane from the data plane. This allowed us to run the processor and CPU-intensive functions in the cloud where that capacity is much less expensive and easily scalable. This works with a wide range of devices
