Pluribus Networks, Inc. Key Developments

Pluribus Networks Announces Virtualization-Centric Fabric, Approach to the Burgeoning Software-Defined Network Marketplace

Pluribus Networks announced Virtualization-Centric Fabric, its robust architectural approach to the burgeoning software-defined network marketplace. Uniquely different from competitive offerings, and based entirely on proven approaches to networking, clustering, management and resiliency, Pluribus VCF is available now and delivered as part of Pluribus’ family of Netvisor [2]® operating systems for open switches. Pluribus VCF delivers the industry’s only completely virtualized networking fabric with macro segmentation that includes complete flow-level visibility. The Pluribus patented Virtualization-Centric Fabric (VCF) architecture focuses on the needs of an agile data center network, providing the essential and elastic network connectivity amongst its virtual workloads and their distributed services. The Pluribus VCF architecture is at the heart of the Pluribus and Ericsson business partnership [3] that was announced earlier this year at the Intel IDF conference to support Ericsson’s next generation Hyper Scale Data Systems for the Cloud.

Pluribus Networks Appoints Ram Bhide as Vice President of Engineering

Pluribus Networks, Inc. announced it has appointed Ram Bhide as the organization's vice president of engineering. The role will see Bhide managing and directing corporate engineering for the company through strategic planning, product design, quality assurance and all customer-facing aspects of the product life-cycle. Bhide brings significant technical and executive management experience to Pluribus Networks, having spent 20 years with Cisco Systems. His most recent role was vice president of engineering overseeing the company's enterprise routing solutions. Prior to that, he was responsible for delivering many of the company's most popular switching and routing solutions, including the Catalyst 6800 family and ISR/ASR series of LAN and WAN products.

Pluribus Networks Releases Open Netvisor 2.3

Pluribus Networks announced the release of Open Netvisor 2.3, which includes direct support for hyperscale data centers used by service-providers. Supporting the Ericsson HDS8000 Hyperscale cloud offering based upon Intel Rack Scale Architecture, Open Netvisor 2.3 enables both out-of-band and in-band management, fabric wide rolling software upgrades, and fast convergence of Layer 3 protocols using BFD (often used to deploy leaf/spine PODs and similar topologies). Pluribus Open Netvisor 2.3 provides a unique opportunity for the service provider industry by enabling them to allow businesses to drive their foundational infrastructure topology, rather than the other way around. Key features within Open Netvisor 2.3 include: Security enhancements to allow the use of TLS and redundant out-of-band management to secure the control plane for Telco Datacenter needs, which complements the existing SSL support. This secured redundant management is a critical need for service providers as their business is driven by SLA performance; High Availability Cluster-Fabric enhancements include a fabric wide rolling upgrade capability to allow software and security upgrades without any downtime. Pluribus’ Netvisor Cluster-Fabric offers single point of management and control, and now the entire fabric can be upgraded with a single command while the fabric remains in service, eliminating the need for scheduled downtime; The Pluribus Netvisor Cluster-Fabric control plane now operates independent of Layer 2, Layer 3, or VXLAN based overlay networks. Netvisor offers broadcast and loop free Layer 2 topologies (necessary for server virtualization) that can scale to over 1 million MAC entries or Virtual Ports (“vports”) enabling customers to build large Layer 2 networks or build large Layer 3 networks based on BGP/ECMP and use overlays to support Virtual Machine migration. The Open Netvisor 2.3 release also adds BFD support to improve Layer 3 convergence for customers deploying large clouds.
