Shekar Ayyar, a prominent figure in Silicon Valley‘s technology sector, recently took the reins at Arrcus, a networking startup focusing on routing and switching platforms. With over two decades of experience in various roles, including general management, research, strategy, and business development, Ayyar was drawn to Arrcus due to its unique story and his desire to set up something of his own. He had previously served as the executive vice president and general manager of the telco and edge cloud business at VMware.
Ayyar’s perspective on the current downturn in the US technology sector is that it’s part of a cyclical movement. Despite the temporary challenges, he believes that the industry will recover, and impacted jobs will bounce back as people reskill themselves. He anticipates a potential recovery around the middle of the next year.
While artificial intelligence (AI) has garnered significant attention, Ayyar emphasizes that the success of applications like AI, virtual reality, and the Internet of Things relies on robust underlying infrastructure technologies such as computer networking and storage. He underscores the importance of dynamic and adaptable underlying technology to support these emerging applications.
Arrcus, headquartered in San Jose, California, maintains a strong presence in Bengaluru, India, with a growing engineering team. The company is also expanding its sales and go-to-market efforts, with a particular focus on the Indian market. Ayyar sees great potential in India’s digital economy, especially as the volume of financial transactions drives the demand for advanced technology solutions.
