Pluribus Networks, the company that brings together compute, network, storage, and virtualization into a single platform, announced today its analytics solution, inNetworkTM Analytics, which empowers both NetOps and DevOps with faster time-to-problem resolution and seamless visibility into both overlay and underlay networks. The Freedom Analytics solution, leveraging the company’s Server-Switch product line and Netvisor® OS, completely eliminates external taps and the burden of a separate, dedicated monitoring fabric. The analytics are integrated in the user interfaces to show real time and historical data using time machine technology. Uses include network and fabric assurance, application performance monitoring, network security and compliance reporting.
Pluribus Networks will be demonstrating inNetwork Analytics at the Open Networking Summit in Santa Clara, Booth 705, March 3-5, 2014. In addition, the company will be supplying core services within the ONS Showcase Network. Sunay Tripathi, CTO and co-founder of Pluribus, will be speaking in the Hot Startup Track, Tuesday, March 4, at 2:30 p.m. local time.
The Pluribus Freedom Server-Switch brings directly into the network advanced fabric-wide monitoring and analytics services at a scale and performance unmatched by traditional network switches. By leveraging the Netvisor OS and Fusion-io drive technology, the Freedom Server-Switch can drive hundreds of thousands of IOPS to power the Freedom analytics engine with a performance and scale unmatched by traditional network switches and monitoring solutions in the industry.
Pluribus inNetwork Analytics provides unprecedented visibility into real-time and historical application flow analytics, critical in today’s world of malware and attacks, and may be deployed seamlessly for bare metal and virtual server traffic flows without any special agent running on the servers. Leveraging the unique Freedom architecture, key features include:
- Out-of-box fabric-wide analytics without the requirement for dedicated tap ports on switches, flow collectors or agents on servers, and without the need for a dedicated monitoring fabric or additional code development. Flow collection is independent of switches or topology, and limitations due to switch hardware tables are all but eliminated.
- Analytics are not only fabric-wide, but also at the virtual network/application level, including full visibility inside overlay traffic, which is no longer ‘opaque.’
- Ability in real-time to capture, analyze, modify, redirect, drop, and police flows across the entire fabric-cluster from any node in the cluster. Historical data is logged, available via ‘Time Machine,’ and may be exported for big data analysis.
- The Pluribus Freedom F64’s ‘industrial’ control plane permits monitoring at wire-rate as opposed to sampling, where nuances may be lost.
- Rich APIs between the network and the application layer permit greater visibility into the analytics, and, for the first time, applications may be proactive in managing network resources as opposed to being reactive as a result of these analytics.
- Pluribus offers highly flexible export options to visualization and forensics applications, including open-source tools such as Qosient ARGUS, all of which may be hosted on Netvisor.
“Innovative solutions such as Pluribus inNetwork Analytics simplify compute, networking and virtualization in a unified platform,” said Will Hall, Fusion-io vice president of OEM sales. “Fusion-io is proud to provide industry-leading acceleration and reliability with the ioScale for the Pluribus inNetwork Analytics solution.”
“The analytics tool that Pluribus is announcing today gives users detailed visibility into underlay and overlay networks without the need for a monitoring fabric, allowing them to monitor performance levels and scale in a way that could not be done with legacy solutions, ” said Peter Christy, 451 Research.
The Pluribus inNetwork Analytics solution, available this calendar quarter, consists of the Freedom F64 bundled with 825GB of Fusion-io ioScale storage and the Netvisor Software-Defined Fabric services package. The integrated storage is capable of maintaining a record of more than 1 million application flows across the fabric and can store more than 1 TB of historical data per switch.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...

Any Ops team trying to support a company in today’s cloud-connected world knows that a new way of thinking is required – one just as dramatic than the shift from Ops to DevOps. The diversity of modern operations requires teams to focus their impact on breadth vs. depth. In his session at DevOps Summit, Adam Serediuk, Director of Operations at xMatters, Inc., will discuss the strategic requirements of evolving from Ops to DevOps, and why modern Operations has begun leveraging the “NoOps” approa...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
