In our data-driven age, today's mainstream businesses need a combination of both cloud and “on premises” infrastructure with the same level of capabilities as tech giants like Amazon, Microsoft and Google. But the server racks they buy from traditional OEMs are still designed with software and hardware based on legacy architectures from the 1980s and '90s.

In conversation with Eclipse Partners Seth Winterroth and Kushagra Vaid, Bryan and Jessie also discuss the humanity of their deeply technical venture, through early implementation of their core values in the company and inspirational advice for future founders.
