FREMONT, CA: Pluribus networks, a provider of data center and networking solutions, announces the release of Open Netvisor Linux (ONVL) – a solution that offers the automatic creation of fully connected mesh networking for the data center along with deep visibility and application– awareness of the flow of information for applications like big data, network storage and virtual desktop infrastructure.

ONVL provides the ability to create an agile, fully connected and single fabric irrespective of the number of switches.  ONVL also simplifies the process of deploying and maintaining of the data center network. It provides in-depth visibility and application-level awareness of the flow of information between applications and services such as big data, network storage, hyper-converged and other virtualized components thus enabling the optimization of these applications.

ONVL fully utilizes the hardware potential found in the Dell Open Network family of switches by providing wire-speed and low-latency switching with complete Layer-2 and Layer-3 compatibility for existing infrastructures.

Pluribus Networks also took into consideration the top three priorities for enterprise buyers of SDN solutions based on a survey conducted by IDC and addressed them.

Open Netvisor Linux version 2.3.2 for Dell comes in two versions: Pluribus Open Netvisor Linux for Dell Open Networking – Fabric Extender Edition and Pluribus Open Netvisor Linux for Dell Open Networking – Enterprise Edition.

Pluribus Open Netvisor  Linux for Dell Open Networking – Fabric Extender Edition

Pluribus ONVL –fabric extender edition is an open source-based network operating system which is based upon the Pluribus Virtualization-Centric Fabric (VCF) architecture, a proven approach to understanding flow, rapidly responding to business needs and securing your data. Pluribus ONVL combines the benefits of Linux with a distributed controller fabric. A traditional CLI (Command Line Interface) is paired with fabric-wide programmability (C, Java, RESTful API).

Pluribus ONVL- Is based upon the Pluribus Virtualization-Centric Fabric (VCF) architecture, a proven approach to understanding flow, rapidly responding to business needs and securing your data. Pluribus ONVL combines the benefits of Linux with a distributed controller fabric providing unprecedented insight, agility and security. A traditional CLI (Command Line Interface) is paired with fabric-wide programmability (C, RESTful API), and DevOps tools (e.g. Ansible) for agility and automation via a single point of management.

“Dell has taken a leadership role in bringing a full line of high-performance Open Compute Project (OCP) compliant open switches to the Enterprise. The hardware specified by the OCP efforts is incredible, but realizing that value is a function of the operating system loaded upon those switches”, says Robert Drost, Co-Founder of Pluribus Networks, “So we designed ONVL to deliver our Virtualization-Centric Fabric (VCF) to Dell’s open switches and transform them far beyond the traditional capabilities seen in Layer-2 and Layer-3 switches alone – a key requirement in today’s modern data centers with modern virtualized applications and services.”
