Pluribus Networks is simplifying the Software-Defined Data Center with its simple, dynamic and secure Adaptive Cloud Fabric architecture, enabling organizations to build scalable networks to improve service velocity, performance, and reliability.
The Netvisor OS software virtualizes open networking hardware to build a holistic, distributed network that is intelligent, automated and resilient. This radically simplified architecture enables organizations to bridge the operational models of DevOps and NetOps to overcome the growing skill gaps that exist in many IT organizations. The result is a greatly simplified administration through automation while enabling consistency across the network without compromise.
The Adaptive Cloud Fabric operates without a controller, and delivers a more dynamic, resilient, and elastic network that adapts to change and streamlines operations to improve efficiency, and lower costs. The Adaptive Cloud Fabric can be deployed across the data center, or targeted to specific racks, pods, server farms, including Hyper-Converged Infrastructure.
Multiple geographically distributed data centers can be interconnected into a seamless fabric over any WAN or dark fiber to optimize performance and resource availability, improve resiliency and support disaster recovery requirements without special protocols or re-engineering. The dynamic, scale-out architecture delivers multi-terabit capacity with predictable performance and latency and supports millions of concurrent connections, enabling organizations of any size to build a next-generation private or public cloud that is optimized to support mission-critical environments.
Key differences of the Netvisor OS and Adaptive Cloud Fabric from first generation SDN technology include the following:
- Completely software enabled and built on open networking platforms
- Virtualizes underlying switch enabling segmented virtual networks across devices
- No SDN controllers or proprietary protocols radically simplifying the network architecture
- Plug and play operation with automated provisioning and management
- Supports a geographically distributed operating environment
- No Leaf-Spine lock-in, and fully interoperable with existing network deployments
Pluribus Insight Analytics is an enterprise-class Network Performance Management and Analytics platform that is integrated into the Pluribus UNUM management platform. Insight Analytics provides an end-to-end view of network traffic, application flows and interactions. Insight Analytics leverages the embedded telemetry from the Netvisor OS to provide pervasive visibility across the Adaptive Cloud Fabric. In addition, Insight Analytics monitors traffic across the Hypervisor, packet/wire data and flow data from other network devices. Insight Analytics provides real-time and historical actionable information to streamline troubleshooting, pinpoint performance issues, support optimization activities and improve security awareness.
