“His” refers to Jason Forrester, formerly global data center network manager at Apple and now the founder and chief executive of SnapRoute. The startup now has roughly 32 employees, Forrester told VentureBeat in an interview. Forrester figures that the startup has around 35-50 customers, and its software is being used on 12,000-13,000 switches. He declined to name any of SnapRoute’s customers, but Facebook employees have repeatedly mentioned the company’s software by name in recent months.

- The software is simpler, focussed and more reliable: “Sure enough, Forrester said, while Cisco’s code runs to 30 million lines of code or more, SnapRoute’s takes up perhaps 100,000.”
- A modern startup can compete with established vendors on features and get substantial sales in markets that they cannot reach
