Pluribus Networks, a provider of open networking and controllerless software-defined networking (SDN) automation, announced architectural innovations in the Pluribus Adaptive Cloud Fabric to deliver unprecedented scalability for hybrid clouds and edge computing.
The controllerless SDN automation across much larger fabrics
The Adaptive Cloud Fabric which is powered by the Netvisor ONE OS, is designed to meet customer demands for 256, 512 or even 1,024 switches. Furthermore, for greater scalability, standards-based interoperability and service extension to third-party fabrics, the Adaptive Cloud Fabric will also support open fabric extension with EVPN.
Kumar Srikantan, CEO at Pluribus Networks, said,
“In the current environment, data center network fabrics must scale in multiple dimensions to meet the challenges of large private cloud and edge computing deployments. The Adaptive Cloud Fabric is already proven as a distributed multi-site data center fabric that is highly cost-effective, automated, agile and easy to operate. Now we can extend all the advantages of the Adaptive Cloud Fabric’s controllerless SDN automation across much larger fabrics, while also enabling EVPN-based fabric extension and multi-vendor interoperability.”
The Adaptive Cloud Fabric meets network scalability demands with two complementary innovations. The first innovation is thousand-node fabrics that extends the advantages of controller-less SDN automation across larger fabrics. New capabilities incorporated into the Pluribus UNUM management system enables the Adaptive Cloud Fabric to scale far beyond current levels and meet virtually any customer’s scalability requirements.
The second one is open Fabric Extension with EVPN that enables multi-fabric federation and multi-vendor interoperability. The Adaptive Cloud Fabric incorporates open fabric extension using BGP EVPN.
