Pluribus Networks talks scale, connecting 1000+ nodes from cloud to edge
Pluribus Networks has announced architectural innovations in the Pluribus Adaptive Cloud Fabric to deliver unprecedented scalability for hybrid clouds and edge computing. As organizations seek to build distributed multi-site fabrics that can scale within centralized data centers, as well as outward to edge data centers, the Adaptive Cloud Fabric is designed to meet customer demands for 256, 512 or even 1,024 switches in a unified fabric. To enable even greater scalability, as well as standards-based interoperability and service extension to third-party fabrics, the Adaptive Cloud Fabric will also support open fabric extension with EVPN.
“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,” says Kumar Srikantan, CEO at Pluribus Networks. “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.”
