Business-Defined Networking and Visibility for your Data Center
Your business is running faster than it ever has before. Your data center must be able to deliver new services in minutes rather than months, and it should be able to support environments with micro-services that appear and vanish in seconds. You need networking that supports this type of deep digital-transformation. In short, you want your data center networking to be a nimble and responsive and not merely a sunk cost of older, rigid approaches.
Traditional data center networking is complex to manage and troubleshoot: too many boxes, too many protocols with too many conflicting needs. It is expensive to monitor and completely ignores the concept of virtualized services which traverse the data center. Plus, it is difficult to virtualize and the use of overlay technologies simply masks the complexity by increasing the overhead and the number of operators that must be involved.
There should be able to leverage your existing investments in networking gear while allowing you to begin building highly responsive modern data center , while enabling new applications as you move to a software-defined data center or private cloud.
Its called VCF and its available exclusively from Pluribus and its partners. VCF is our Next-Generation networking architecture that is designed to support Millions of Users, Billions of Applications and Trillions of connected “Things”. VCF makes tomorrow possible today.
Built on the Pluribus Virtualization-Centric Fabric (VCF) Architecture
The Pluribus Virtualization-Centric Fabric (VCF™) is a distributed architecture, based on a collection of clustering techniques which presents an open, standards-based Ethernet fabric as one logical entity, enabling unprecedented agility, insight and security of the network fabric. Built on the VCF architecture, Pluribus Netvisor powered switches form a logical switching fabric which can be allocated to new applications with the touch of a button or via programmatic interfaces. Read CTO Sunay Tripathi’s blog on how VCF unifies the physical and virtual network.

Dell Switch OS
Pluribus Networks advances software-defined networking (SDN) through Open Netvisor® Linux (ONVL) for Dell, the industry’s most programmable, open source-based network operating system. Pluribus ONVL is based on our highly available, scalable, and controller-less Virtualization-Centric Fabric architecture.
Pluribus Netvisor is designed to provide your Layer 2 and Layer 3 networking both more efficiently and at a lower cost than traditional switching infrastructure. And while providing that essential connectivity, it provides unparalleled agility, insight and security for your datacenter networking using a distributed controller fabric that eliminates any single points of failure or scalability concerns.

Network Performance Monitoring
Wouldn’t it be great to easily and cost effectively get business insights from your data center networking infrastructure? Regardless whether you’re in Networking, Development, Security or IT overall, you could always use better information for application performance monitoring, your east-west security posture, auditable flow data, network capacity planning or troubleshooting/forensic analysis.
Today, this usually requires expensive additional hardware and tools such as network taps or brokers which then dump data into a backend analytics platform. These systems only give visibility to the fraction of your network data they’re connected to and often require extensive setup. Learn how data center network performance monitoring tools from Pluribus Networks provides you the solutions you need.
