"Pluribus’ model is based around a decentralized network system approach, meaning that there is no single, central controller that is required for the entire system to function."
"Pluribus and Celestica have collaborated closely to deliver a disaggregated software-hardware offering that responds to the extensive and exacting needs of these increasingly important distributed cloud environments,” says Brad Casemore, research vice president, Datacentre Networks, IDC.
"Pluribus views edge computing in the context of distributed cloud architecture. Centralized data centers, regional or colocation facilities, remote cabinets, and a base station on premises can all be used for edge computing...'we’re really slimming down what’s required to deploy at the edge location from a networking perspective.'”
Pluribus Networks says it has designed a system that is purpose built for distributed cloud and the edge.
Pluribus Networks is helping telecoms and managed service providers expand their data center infrastructure to include smaller edge locations, grow their cloud offerings, and inject more network automation into their environments.
“We have created a full networking automation package that is all pre-integrated with SDN, virtualization, network analytics, and network segmentation which the enterprise, especially mid and small-sized companies can use without needing a deep pool of engineering talent. The smallest IT teams can automate their data center networks." - Mike Capuano, CMO, Pluribus Networks.
"The company continues to be ranked as a leader in SDN and data center modernization by IT research firms."
"U.K.-based Anana tapped Dell EMC open networking hardware and Pluribus Networks SDN as part of its data center modernization project. It’s the latest in a string of customer wins for Dell and Pluribus."
"The deal with Anana followed on the heels of Pluribus and Dell EMC making similar announcements recently with the Amsterdam Internet Exchange and Italy's Scavolini."
"Pluribus Networks CEO Kumar Srikantan recently sat down with Authority Magazine to discuss leadership, decision-making and the importance of a trusted advisor. 'Whether it’s a founder, an investor or a board member, you need someone in a leadership position who you trust and can lean on to get a grounded view of the company.'"
"The technology is ready - creating a software-defined cloud interconnect fabric will enable smaller providers to compete effectively with larger providers and increase the value of their data centers. Learn more from Pluribus director of marketing Jay Gill."
Jay Gill of Pluribus Networks notes: “The key theme from customers we talk to is that need to get more efficient in the way they operate their cloud infrastructure so they can move the staff onto more valuable things.”
Mike Capuano, CMO, Pluribus Networks joined speakers from eWEEK, ZK Research and The Bloom Group for the discussion “Living on the Edge: A New Era of Enterprise Computing.”
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.
Pluribus Networks announced a new customer relationship with Metro Digital Group, a leader in the design, implementation, and service of rich media production pipelines for the entertainment and broadcast industries.
“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.
Metro Digital Group, an MSP technology company supporting rich media production pipelines for entertainment and broadcast including some of Hollywood’s leading creative companies and agencies, has selected Pluribus Networks’ SDN to deliver high-performance connectivity and deep visibility.
“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.”
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.

Learn more about Pluribus’ controllerless approach that distributes the network intelligence into the switches themselves in this explainer video with Mike Capuano, CMO.
Watch Mike Capuano, Pluribus Networks CMO, describe challenges and solutions for distributed cloud and edge computing.
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.
