SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – April 11, 2016Pluribus Networks, the data center network solutions provider that allows your business to run unconstrained, today announced its selection as a finalist for Interop Las Vegas’ 2016 Best of Interop Awards in the “Performance, Management & Monitoring” category for the company’s VCF™ Insight Analytics (VCF-IA) solution. The Best of Interop Awards recognize exhibitors for innovation and technological advancements within 10 core areas of IT. Award winners will be announced from Interop Las Vegas 2016, which takes place May 2-6 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

“Delivering network insights and associated metrics to IT organizations has historically been both difficult to achieve and prohibitively expensive,” said Kumar Srikantan, CEO of Pluribus Networks. “VCF-IA’s recognition by the Interop Awards as a business intelligence tool that defies those norms and simplifies the lives of network managers at every level is an honor that validates our vision in almost every way.”

Pluribus Networks will showcase its latest version of VCF-IA at Interop Las Vegas, the industry’s most respected independent technology event for modern IT and networking professionals. VCF-IA is the company’s signature, flow-based, client-server oriented business intelligence solution for the data center. VCF-IA can be deployed on any data center network – regardless of manufacturer – to provide a critical operational view of the data center network for deep insight into applications for performance monitoring, troubleshooting and enhancing the effectiveness of forensic analysis and security.

Pluribus VCF Insight Analytics can be used anywhere business analytics are desired:

  • For existing data center networks, VCF-IA is available as a packaged offering which includes a high performance Pluribus collector hardware appliance, which can be used to realize flow-level monitoring within existing third-party network infrastructures
  • For data centers built upon Pluribus’ own networking fabric top-of-rack switches, VCF-IA is offered as a standalone virtual machine image that can be deployed upon any host server

“Congratulations to Pluribus Networks and all Best of Interop finalists on the success of their new products and positive impact on the IT community,” said Interop General Manager Jennifer Jessup. “These are the types of visionary solutions that define the future of networking. We’re excited for Interop attendees to be able to interact with these products first-hand in the Expo.”

After a thorough review of all finalists, an expert judging panel will announce the winners on May 4 from noon- 12:45 p.m. PT on the Expo floor.
