Pluribus Networks has announced its vision and architecture for unified cloud networks, with the Pluribus Unified Cloud Material solution. Cloud operators, including enterprises, cloud service providers and communication service providers, now have a solution that enables them to seamlessly evolve to a new cloud network architecture and achieve greater security , a drastic discount in complexity, a lower complete cost and greater agility to safely accelerate your business at the speed of the cloud.

Pluribus has also announced its collaboration with industry leader NVIDIA to enable a critical aspect of the unified cloud network architecture. Pluribus has ported its proven Netvisor ONE operating system, widely deployed on data center switches around the world, to the NVIDIA BlueField-2 DPU , which offloads, accelerates and isolates data center infrastructure tasks, enabling that the Pluribus Unified Cloud Material extends to both switches and DPUs.

This solution harnesses the full power of the NVIDIA BlueField hardware accelerators and NVIDIA DOCA , the software development framework that powers BlueField. Initial use cases for the architecture include software-defined networking (SDN), unified and automated network fabrics with distributed security services, including micro-segmentation, distributed firewalls, and pervasive network visibility.

Cloud network operators of all kinds recognize the need to move to a new, more distributed, zero-trust security network architecture to address growing cybersecurity risks, while transforming their cloud networks to be as agile, highly available, and simple to function as hyperscale public clouds. Pluribus solutions built on Pluribus Unified Cloud Fabric, the next generation of the company’s award-winning Adaptive Cloud Fabric, enable cloud network operators to overcome the obstacles of their current surroundings and the shortcomings of existing solutions, so that can move quickly towards this goal.

The Pluribus Unified Cloud Networking and Unified Cloud Material architecture attributes include

  • Unified and simplified cloud networks. Pluribus eliminates fragmented networks with separate operating models, enables a smooth migration to the new distributed architecture, and reduces complexity and operational costs by providing a consistent network operations model across underlying (physical) and overlay (virtual) networks, in switches and servers, and in heterogeneous and distributed clouds.
  • Distributed security without compromise. Pluribus enables network security to be distributed at the server level, including fine-grained micro-segmentation and stateful distributed firewalls. Pluribus Unified Cloud Material enables considerably better performance and lower complete cost of ownership compared to hardware appliances or purely software-based solutions.
  • Omnipresent visibility. Pluribus offers built-in visibility and analytics for every application and every traffic flow, improving proactive problem detection and resolution and eliminating the extra cost and incomplete coverage of separate monitoring networks.
  • SDN-enabled automation. Pluribus solutions incorporate industry-leading controllerless SDN automation to enable network operations teams to administer highly distributed networks with thousands of DPUs and other network endpoints, while avoiding the challenges of integrating network automation tools. third parties or create and maintain DIY scripts.
  • Accelerated SDN on the host. Running the Pluribus Unified Cloud Fabric on the NVIDIA BlueField DPU extends the power and flexibility of hardware-accelerated software-defined networking to all hosts with a DPU installed.

Pluribus Unified Cloud Material is the industry’s only solution that enables cloud operators to gracefully transform to the new highly distributed cloud network architecture with built-in security, visibility, and automation, proven mission-critical reliability, and radically simplified operations across cloud computing. distributed cloud networks. Compared to alternative solutions, Pluribus Unified Cloud Networking can also offer cost savings that add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars over a typical cloud data center.

“The advances that Pluribus has made in its architecture in the last year reinforce that we are truly the Unified Cloud Networks company. Pluribus solutions significantly reduce complexity and enable enterprises and service providers to take full advantage of the distributed multi-cloud era. I am extremely proud that we have now achieved the industry’s only open, automated SDN solution that unifies the network across both data center switches and servers while maintaining security, automation, visibility and performance.” – Kumar Srikantan, CEO of Pluribus Networks.

“A new wave of technologies spanning AI, 5G and virtual worlds is being enabled by next-generation data centers, driving demand for accelerated computing and next-generation clouds with software-defined networking. Pluribus SDN technology running on NVIDIA BlueField DPUs improves networking performance, security, operational efficiency, and scalability to equip customers to rapidly deploy next-generation cloud-native applications.” – Kevin Dierling, senior vice president of networking at NVIDIA
