Welcome to The V Formation

Welcome to The V Formation, a blog focused on enterprise product strategy and entrepreneurship. Who am I? I'm Vivek Saraswat, an enterprise product management leader. Over the years I've had the privilege of working with some great companies--startups and giants alike--in the enterprise infrastructure and developer tools space. I invested in and advised enterprise startups at Mayfield Fund, launched and managed Docker's enterprise platform, created VMware's Storage for Cloud-Native Apps initiative, and worked at AWS on snapshots for Elastic Block Store. In a previous life I was an early engineer at a venture-backed energy startup, before I traded in my clean room bunny-suit for the world of product specs and GitHub issues. My other big passion is music--I sing in an a cappella group called Halfway to Midnight , and have played in various rock bands. I enjoy spending time with my family, playing video and tabletop games, and attempting to appease my cat. W
