Pluribus Networks Demonstrates Hardware-based OpenStack VTEP, VxLAN and SD-WAN Interoperability at ONUG

Pluribus Networks, the company that brings the power of virtualization to the network, today announced a group of its top executives and engineers will be on-hand during the Open Network User Group (ONUG) conference at New York University (Nov. 3-5) to demonstrate the interoperability of its software-defined computing, storage and networking technologies. As part of these demonstrations, Pluribus will also debut the general availability of the latest iteration of its flagship offering, Netvisor V2.3, and Open Netvisor Linux, which provides GUI-based visualization and advanced management capabilities for large enterprises.

“Bringing end-users together with vendors to discuss their specific needs and to participate in interoperability demonstrations accelerates the definition of requirements and the market availability of advanced, but interoperable product offerings,” said Peter Christy, research director, 451 Research. “Pluribus Networks continues to demonstrate its commitment to openness, while at the same time delivering products aligned with the needs of the most forward-looking businesses and demanding end-users.”

At the event, Pluribus will participate in several working groups to demonstrate the benefits of its software-defined capabilities. Specific demonstration groups will include:

  1. Overlay working group. Pluribus will join with other competitive SDN providers to showcase its hardware-based OpenStack VTEP leveraging the OpenStack Neutron plugin. The demonstration will also illustrate how tunnel interoperability works between multiple vendors.
  2. Interoperability working group. Pluribus will partner with Silverpeak and Nutanix to demonstrate a complete end-to-end virtualized Branch-to-Data Center solution that combines SDN and SD-WAN. VMs will be connected across the local and wide area fabric.
  3. Monitoring working group. Pluribus will showcase its acclaimed fabric-wide application level visibility. Users will be able to see VMs as “vports” along with TCP level connections (yielding 100 percent visibility) even when server overlays are utilized. Netvisor Fabric supports 1.2M “vports” in a leaf-spine pod and can track millions of connections without the need for external hardware TAPs.

Each working group demonstration will utilize Pluribus’ Netvisor 2.3 products. Version 2.3 includes a number of customer-centric capabilities along with an entirely new graphic user interface designed to make point-and-click management of virtualization-centric fabrics easier for users.

“We see the software-defined marketplace rapidly gaining momentum as end-users begin to consider alternatives to their long-standing infrastructure strategies. Older networking solutions are now increasingly difficult to defend in the corporate world, especially now that more SDN solutions like those we provide are more readily available,” said Sunay Tripathi, CTO and co-founder, Pluribus Networks. “We are truly thrilled to be joining those who are at the forefront of the Open Networking industry during ONUG, and to demonstrate our strategies and solutions, which are both revolutionary in what they offer and yet are fully compatible with existing network infrastructures.”
