Leaf and Spine Switches

High performance network switches providing best-in-class economics for Top-of-Rack Leaf and High Capacity Spine switches

Freedom E-Series Switches for Networking Insight, Agility and Security

The Pluribus Networks Freedom E-series switches provide best-in-class networking functionality including switching, routing, storage and analytics. The E-Series switches are powered by the Netvisor® operating system (nvOS), the most open and programmable SDN operating system in the industry. nvOS is built on the Pluribus Virtualization-Centric Fabric (VCF™) architecture, enabling Pluribus E-series switches to create a distributed controller, tap-less network fabric.

Freedom E68-M – The Perfect Leaf Switch

As network operations become more application centric, the network’s edge becomes more important. Thus, E68-M switches are perfect for edge networking as they provide the application flow telemetry data that is passing right through the network.

Freedom E-series Leaf Switch

The Pluribus Freedom E68-M is an E-series switch that is commodity-priced, Top-of-Rack with a unique combination of switch, compute and storage designed to run fabric switching and analytics at radical economics.

The E68-M is built upon the Pluribus Virtualization-Centric Fabric architecture that so flexible that is allows the E68-M to also operate as a cost effective intelligent Packet Broker or TAP aggregation switch. E68-M switches are perfect for building the Leaf layers in both new deployments and third-party networking environments.

Freedom E28-L – The Perfect Spine Switch

The Pluribus Freedom E28Q-L high performance spine switch provides a unique combination of router, switch, compute, and storage designed to run fabric switching along with converged network services and high-performance analytics directly into the fabric.

Freedom E-series Spine Switch

The platform is built for Spine switching in the traditional Leaf-Spine architecture for East-West traffic. The switch has the traditional Layer-2 and Layer-3 networking protocols that enables NetOps to simplify new deployments.

E28Q-L has a 28×40 GE port configuration which reduces the wiring complexity during network building activity. With up to 80×10 GE break-out ports, the E-28Q-L gives great options to build at the spine layer of the network from the ground up.

The dual socket Intel Xeon E3 with 12 cores and 64 GB of RAM gives the switch an enormous amount of compute power. The switch’s 240 GB of internal storage can be extended up 3.84 TB of external storage through 4 SSD slots. This reduces the requirement for external storage, simplifying regular data center operations. The storage options also can be used as a “Time Machine” (a.k.a. Network DVR). The Time Machine capability enables NetOps to analyze networking transactions for deep forensic analysis by going back through up to 3 years of networking metadata.
