Network World chooses Pluribus Networks as a top ten Network virtualization, SDN, and data center company to watch

PALO ALTO, Calif. – March 12, 2013 – Last week Network World chose Pluribus Networks as one of the top ten network virtualization, SDN and data center companies to watch. Pluribus Networks offers a programmable, distributed network operating system, Netvisor®, which runs both on their own highly-optimized, intelligent Top of Rack (iTOR™) hardware, as well as low-cost white box switches.

The Netvisor Fabric provides instant unmatched visibility, always available analytics and high availability to the virtualized as well as non-virtualized infrastructure. Since it is managed as a single logical switch and offers plug and play functionality with sub micro-second latencies , the Netvisor Fabric provides huge CAPEX and OPEX reduction in Web2.0 and Hadoop clusters, making Pluribus Networks, the leader in intelligent top of the rack fabrics for private and public cloud datacenters.

According to Jerry Yang, entrepreneur and co-founder of Yahoo!: “As an early investor in Pluribus, I was attracted to the potential of the performance, scale, and manageability of the Pluribus solutions. I’m now excited to join the board to work with the founders and management team to take their vision to the next level.” Prior to joining Pluribus Networks, Mr. Yang was a member of Cisco Systems’ board of Directors for twelve years.

“During Beta, Jerry liked the Netvisor Fabric as a logical switch so much, that he became our first customer in very early days”, said Sunay Tripathi, CTO and co-founder of Pluribus Networks. “He provided us with critical guidance that enabled us to focus on operational reliability and ease of management in typical datacenter environments while allowing the architecture to be scalable and programmable in large deployments. It is a pleasure to have Jerry on our board to help us keep a razor sharp focus on actual Web2.0 and Hadoop use cases.”
