Pluribus Netvisor is a datacenter-class Network Operating System that virtualizes open networking HW to build a holistic, distributed network that is more intelligent, automated & resilient. Delivering operational flexibility, it combines best-in-class layer 2/3 networking, highly scalable distributed Adaptive Cloud Fabric architecture & embedded network telemetry to empower the agile, & future-ready DC.
|Category||SDN Controller/Network Virtualization Solution|
|Applicable Verticals||Cloud Service Providers, Communication Service Providers (Telcos), Financials, Government and Education, Healthcare and Retail|
|NG Data Center Networking Relevancy||
Netvisor is a datacenter OS that clusters switches into a unified fabric that can stretch across distributed sites, and virtualization allows switches to instantiate network containers that dynamically allocate services and functions.
Netvisor OS has radically simplified SDN. The Adaptive Cloud Fabric operates without a controller to deliver a dynamic, resilient, & elastic network that streamlines operations & lowers costs. Differences from first generation SDN include: •Software enabled + built on open networking switches •Simpler architecture w/ no SDN controllers or protocols •Virtualized switch hardware •Plug & play operation w/ automated provisioning •Geographically distributed fabric architecture •No Leaf-Spine lock-in
|Areas of Deployment||Campus, Inter-Datacenter and Intra-Datacenter|
|Orchestration Integration||VMware vCloud Suite, API-driven enables broad integrations, including Ansible, Puppet, Chef and others|
|Orchestration Integration Details||
Netvisor is API powered with automation driven from the peer-to-peer distributed architecture, not an external platform. Netvisor integrates with VMware, VxRail, Nutanix, Ansible, Chef, and Puppet to automate network, compute and storage.
