Network virtualization is quickly becoming the next big disruption in the data center, and technologies like server virtualization and cloud computing are helping to bring the sexy back to the world of networking.

While the software-defined networking (SDN) market is still evolving, it's evident that future networks will be commonly virtualized and their parameters defined in software, much like we do today with desktops and servers. One of the companies looking to capitalize on this emerging market is a startup called Plumgrid.

Founded in early 2011, Plumgrid came out of stealth mode after securing $10.7 million in a Series A round of funding in August 2012 from U.S. Venture Partners and Hummer Winblad Venture Partners. With a mission of providing network virtualization solutions that enable businesses to manage their physical, virtual, and cloud data centers with greater agility and efficiency, Plumgrid assembled a team of industry veterans from companies such as Cisco Systems, Marvell, Nicira, Sun, Vyatta, and VMware.

Now that same team has released Plumgrid Platform, a solution designed to automate data center operations and increase IT efficiency and productivity while reducing associated costs.

The software solution is targeted at enterprises and cloud service providers building private and public cloud data centers. According to Plumgrid, it enables users to quickly and easily create, copy, and deploy secure multitenant virtual networks.
