Data Center Networking

Open disaggregated networking solutions for the cloud era

Democratizing Hyperscale Cloud Infrastructure – Cloud Operating Model with On-prem Performance, Control and Cost efficiencies.

IT teams are embracing hybrid cloud strategies, using public cloud where it makes sense but maintaining a majority of workloads in private cloud data center infrastructure for performance, security, control and cost-efficiency reasons. To deliver public cloud-like agility and availability, private cloud data centers must evolve to support a cloud operating model. Though compute and storage are highly virtualized, network virtualization and automation lags behind, impeding IT teams from achieving a full cloud operating model.

A New Approach to Data Center Networking – Open and SDN Automated

Pluribus Networks breaks the rigid paradigm of legacy network infrastructure to bring the agility of public cloud on-prem with the Adaptive Cloud Fabric™ (ACF) SDN automation software. The ACF solution is built into the Netvisor® ONE operating system and operates on a wide range of high-performance open networking hardware, including the award-winning Pluribus Freedom 9000 Series. The ACF incorporates network automation, virtualization, segmentation, visibility and analytics in a comprehensive, cost-effective and easy-to-use solution that works right out of the box, enabling an agile cloud networking operating model from a single site to a multi-site data center fabric.

The Adaptive Cloud Fabric™ (ACF) delivers new levels of network underlay and overlay automation, network visibility, and security segmentation in an extremely cost-effective solution that works right out of the box. Powered by the deployment-proven Linux-based Netvisor® ONE  OS, the controllerless ACF software is an advanced data center fabric solution that automates and virtualizes a network fabric in inside a single data center or across multiple data centers. When compared with traditional BGP EVPN fabric solutions, ACF provides service deployment simplification of a factor of 1000X. The Adaptive Cloud Fabric delivers Cloud Networking. Simplified.

Pluribus UNUM Management Platform

Pluribus UNUM is an agile, multi-functional portal that enhances the intrinsic automation of the Adaptive Cloud Fabric software in two key modules. The UNUM Fabric Manager provides a GUI-based portal that provides a visual topology, workflows and wizards that eliminates the Command Line Interface (CLI) learning curve and allows a broader range of users to operate the network while minimizing the potential for errors by minimizing direct human interactions with individual devices. UNUM Insight Analytics provides up to 30 days of per-flow telemetry in a searchable database along with providing rich visual dashboards.
