Move Over SDN; Startup Looking to Go Where Only Cisco, VMware Tread
Startup Pluribus takes aim at software-defined fabric
Network World - Software-defined network, software-defined data center ... and now software-defined fabric.
Startup Pluribus Networks is proposing a top-of-rack server/switch combination that can run applications, provide storage and provision services like DNS, DHCP, load balancing, firewalls, analytics and packet capture. Through the company's operating system and hypervisor software, two or more of these server/switch combinations can create a large, virtual data center fabric with network virtualization and software-based control with a variety of proprietary and standard APIs.
