Pluribus Networks Deploys Low-Latency Network Fabric to the Kinetic Edge
May 23, 2019
Networks has successfully deployed release 5.0 of Netvisor ONE OS and
the Adaptive Cloud Fabric at multiple Vapor IO Kinetic Edge sites in
Chicago, IL. The deployment validates Pluribus’ ability to connect
multiple edge data center sites seamlessly, providing a controllerless
distributed fabric with SDN automation and deep network slicing to
support multi-tenancy and multiple edge applications.
•Multi-site data center unification – All nodes of the Adaptive Cloud Fabric federate into a single logical programmable entity that stretches across geo-distributed locations. Customers who deploy at the Kinetic Edge locations can now unify their network fabric from on-prem and third party colocation data centers located anywhere in the world out to Kinetic Edge colocation facilities.
•Simplified operations – The controllerless architecture of Pluribus’ Adaptive Cloud Fabric distributes intelligence and state across every switch in the network. This simplifies operations and reduces costs along with the potential for human error while increasing resiliency by ensuring no single point of failure.
•Deep network slicing – The Adaptive Cloud Fabric uniquely provides isolated data, control, and management planes across the entire fabric to support multi-tenancy and the network slicing specified for 5G environments.
•Comprehensive telemetry – The Adaptive Cloud Fabric captures all TCP flows across the fabric and store them for real-time and offline analytics using Pluribus Insight Analytics. Insight Analytics leverages embedded Netvisor monitoring telemetry and packet flow data sources to enable pervasive visibility across the network, eliminating the need for expensive probes or complex monitoring overlay networks.
•Distributed network services – The adaptive cloud fabric delivers rich layer 3 and layer 2 network services distributed to all nodes in the fabric for increased scale, improved resiliency, and simple connectivity to partners and third-party cloud providers.
