Pluribus Networks, an innovator in open networking and next generation software defined networking (SDN), announced that AMS-IX has deployed Pluribus' Netvisor ONE operating system and the Adaptive Cloud Fabric, along with Dell EMC Open Networking hardware, as part of a multi-site network modernization project.
AMS-IX says it is using Pluribus Networks open networking and software defined networking (SDN) with Dell EMC Open Networking hardware, as part of a multi-site network modernization project.
“With this controllerless approach, there’s no SDN brain in the sky and no need to worry about the cost of the controllers and the redundancy of the controller…Everything is right on the switches in a highly distributed, highly resilient fashion.” - Jay Gill, senior director of marketing, Pluribus Networks.
AMS-IX picked Pluribus' Linux-based Netvisor ONE operating system (NOS) for its ability to create a software-defined networking (SDN) fabric that federates a large number of geographically distributed switches to appear as one logical switch, all of which simplifies network operations.
“We’re going to replace this internet edge router with a cost-optimized white box” - Mike Capuano, CMO, Pluribus Networks
"This is a cost-effective alternative to a traditional router, which is sort of a Swiss Army knife that can fit into many more applications." - Alessandro Barbieri, vice president of product management, Pluribus Networks
“The question of cost becomes an issue when thousands of locations or more need to be built by colos, CSPs and MSPS. Using a white-box approach may be the best way to achieve the cost-benefit analysis needed to justify these investments.”
“It comes in at about one-fifth the cost of a traditional data center gateway router that you might get from the bigger vendors.” - Mike Capuano, CMO, Pluribus Networks
Pluribus delivers network monitoring and SDN fabric solutions for enhanced insight, agility and security to data center infrastructure. The Pluribus Networks Adaptive Cloud Fabric delivers a controllerless SDN fabric that provides a virtual extensible LAN overlay to simplify networking for distributed clouds.
Pluribus CEO & President Kumar Srikantan is profiled by CIO Bulletin and named one of their 10 best CEOs to watch in 2019.
“Pluribus Networks, working with Partners Vapor IO, Packet, and MobiledgeX, deployed its networking fabric across three Kinetic Edge sites in Chicago and says it achieved over six times lower latency with edge compute compared to cloud-based networking.”
Pluribus Networks has been named a finalist in the “Most Innovative Telco Cloud Product Strategy" category.
Mike Capuano, CMO, Pluribus Networks, shares his perspective on trends in SDN in this feature story.
“In order to address challenges associated with a centralized cloud environment for IoT applications, there will be an explosion of mini and micro data centers,” said Mike Capuano, CMO, Pluribus Networks.

In this video, Pluribus Networks' executive Mike Capuano talks with Ray Le Maistre about the drivers of distributed cloud (a.k.a. edge compute).
Pluribus Networks is recognized as a “winner” and considered among the players that “have a chance to flourish as the investment in infrastructure shifts to the edge and the cloud domain,” according to FierceTelecom.
Pluribus announced that version 5.0 of the Netvisor ONE OS has been optimized for edge computing. The latest version of Netvisor ONE OS doubles the number of containerized virtual router instances per switch to provide support for up to 2,000 virtual routing and forwarding instances (VRFs) per network slice, said Mike Capuano, Pluribus Networks’ Chief Marketing Officer.
“Where we're headed with this announcement is we are stretching our fabric out to the edge for edge computing or what we call distributed cloud. That increases agility and reduces operational costs for folks who are deploying edge computing,” said Mike Capuano, Pluribus Networks’ Chief Marketing Officer.
Pluribus Networks, firmly ensconced in the next-gen networking camp with software-centric, open networking offerings on bare-metal (or white-box) hardware, has updated those offerings with a distinct focus on the edge of distributed cloud implementations.
