In an IDC Innovators study examining four start-up vendors that provide SDN for the data center, Pluribus Networks was chosen as an IDC Innovator thanks to differentiators such as its controllerless SDN, which creates a distributed fabric architecture, its ability to virtualize a geographically distributed network that includes embedded telemetry for monitoring network and application performance and its inherent support for data center interconnect. Read the report for the full IDC Innovator Assessment.
Pluribus’ Netvisor ONE virtualizes switch hardware, provides L2-L3 networking, and supports the Pluribus Adaptive Cloud Fabric, a peer-to-peer fabric that can be managed as a single system. The fabric integrates network services and provides visibility into all traffic crossing the network, which can be in a single datacenter or distributed geographically across sites.
Network virtualization supports traffic segmentation and multitenant services. Segmentation can be distributed on multiple switches and can move from switch to switch. Netvisor ONE offers both CLI and API programmability, and VMware integration allows programmability from vCenter. Netvisor ONE interoperates with standards-based networks and can be deployed in brownfield networks. Through industry partnerships and channel sales, Pluribus provides SDN for enterprises, for cloud builders (private and public as well as “telco cloud”), and for those needing integrated analytics, converged networking for storage applications, and HCI-friendly networking.
