Pluribus Adaptive Cloud Fabric
Pluribus Netvisor® software is a data center-class Network Operating System (OS) that virtualizes open networking hardware to build a holistic, distributed network that is more intelligent, automated and resilient. Delivering exceptional operational flexibility, the Netvisor OS combines best-in-class layer 2/3 networking, the highly scalable distributed Adaptive Cloud Fabric architecture, and embedded network performance monitoring telemetry to empower the agile, and future-ready data center.
The Netvisor OS is a standards-based, network Operating System that eliminates the architectural complexities of SDN controllers, so it can seamlessly interoperate with existing networks, enabling the graceful migration to a software-defined data center architecture. The Netvisor OS simplifies data center operations by providing a single network OS to support all deployment points, such as the Leaf and Spine, for consistent operations with unmatched agility, and a significantly lower TCO.
Optimized to meet the stringent requirements of enterprise and service provider data centers, Netvisor OS delivers continuous availability for mission-critical environments. The programmability of the Netvisor OS easily adapts to evolving standards and new technologies, and delivers comprehensive Ethernet features and advanced network services that maximize the performance of high-density, open networking switches.
Netvisor OS supports traditional CLI, RESTful APIs, and an OVSDB interface, enabling IT organizations to overcome IT skill gaps, and bridge the operational models of DevOps and NetOps. Tight integration with VMware vSphere and NSX allows automated provisioning of network resources across the Adaptive Cloud Fabric architecture via VMware vCenter to further streamline operations, and provide an ideal NSX underlay.
The Netvisor OS runs on many Open Compute Project (OCP), and Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) hardware compliant switches, including devices from Dell EMC, D-Link Systems, Edge-core, and the Pluribus Freedom™ series network switches. This flexibility allows organizations the choice of hardware to build scale-out networks with any combination of 10, 25, 40 or 100 Gigabit interfaces. Consequently, an entire data center can be built with only a few physical switch models to improve operational consistency, lower costs, and simplify sparing.
