Pluribus Networks believes that for networking to join the modern world, it needs to move from a hardware-based, fixed feature-set model to one in which an operating system controls the network switch. Netvisor is built on a converged architecture combining merchant silicon-based switching and open source-powered compute. This fundamental change in the control plane enables a new class of programmable network services and applications.
Pluribus Networks Netvisor Demo Synopsis:
Pluribus Networks’ Netvisor is based on enterprise-class UNIX and Linux operating system technology, and it is enhanced through the addition of switch chip virtualization and distributed clustering technologies. Pluribus Networks CMO Dave Ginsburg, Founder and CTO Sunay Tripathi, and Software Architect Prashanth Prahalad demonstrate how Netvisor extends network intelligence from top of rack into the rack and creates a richly programmable application fabric. They discuss:
- The unique capabilities of the Pluribus Netvisor cluster fabric, which allows the entire fabric to be managed like a single switch
- OpenStack provisioning: The hardware architecture of the Pluribus Freedom Series allows both OpenStack controller and the client to run on the same converged device, increasing responsiveness and performance while reducing network complexity
- Pluribus Netvisor’s deep analytic capabilities: Unlike more limited, expensive traditional approaches to analytics, it enables deep analytics in-network, delivering fine-grained visibility and control throughout the fabric without external taps or software agents
