451 Research Whitepaper: Pluribus and Dell Partner to bring Netvisor to Dell’s open switches

Switch software vendor Pluribus Networks has announced an agreement to create a version of its NetVisor software – Pluribus Open Netvisor Linux – that will run on Dell open switches.

Not only can the software run on Dell switches, but additionally, Dell will serve as a global logistics and service provider, rather than the customer buying ‘white box’ switches from an ODM.

The 451 Take: This partnership is exciting because it seems to enable (or at least test) the values of Pluribus’ flexible networking-software architecture, as well as accelerating market evaluation of the concept of open networking.

Dell will provide functional testing for the resulting product, which it says is fully comparable to how Dell tests and certifies its internally developed network products.
