Pluribus Networks, the company that brings together compute, network and storage into a single platform, announced today a relationship with Oracle to integrate its innovative network hypervisor software, Netvisor®, with Oracle Solaris 11 to power the Pluribus Freedom Server-Switch product line. Oracle customers can now deploy turnkey cloud solutions with a compute, network, storage and virtualization infrastructure operated under Oracle Solaris’ consistent cloud automation. Pluribus Networks is a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).
“As a sponsor of the OpenStack Foundation, we are committed to offering our customers the ability to manage Oracle cloud products and services using OpenStack,” said Markus Flierl, vice president, Oracle Solaris. “By integrating Pluribus Networks’ innovative network hypervisor and Freedom Server-Switch platform into the Oracle Solaris ecosystem, our joint customers will soon be able to use OpenStack as a common cloud management infrastructure across compute, network and storage.”
“We are delighted that Oracle will be leveraging Pluribus Networks’ open platform to deliver an unparalleled level of cloud infrastructure integration where compute, network, storage and virtualization can operate as an extension of each other under the Oracle Solaris architecture,” said Kumar Srikantan, CEO of Pluribus Networks.
This relationship between Oracle and Pluribus Networks will have many benefits for the growing number of more than 4,000 Oracle Solaris 11 customers who have gone into production since the release of Oracle Solaris 11. Some of these benefits are:
- The ability to use OpenStack to manage Oracle Solaris 11 running on compute nodes via the Nova plug-in, as well as Pluribus Network switches via the Neutron plug-in, and Oracle Solaris-based ZS3 Series storage via the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance Cinder Driver, allowing joint customers to take advantage of the stability, efficiency, performance, scalability and security of Oracle Solaris
- Turnkey OpenStack-based cloud architecture to help eliminate costly integration and testing work for enterprise private clouds
- Elastic provisioning of virtual networking services: running Oracle Solaris 11 on the Pluribus Network Freedom Server-Switches means that virtual networking services can be dynamically re-provisioned from a compute node to a networking node in order to maximize throughput performance while minimizing latency
- Advanced OpenStack integration with the unique ability to provision virtual services along with virtual networks with the Pluribus Networks Cloud Underlay virtualization technology, which allows customers to manage physical and virtual workloads without complex underlay-overlay network operations
Effective today, Oracle customers can order directly from Pluribus Networks the Freedom Server-Switch platforms with the Oracle Solaris operating system.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, explored HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
