Pluribus Broadens Support for Edgecore White Box Switches
November 03, 2018 / Ali Longwell
To address enterprises’ growing data center networking needs, Pluribus Networks will now support five additional Edgecore Networks switches on its modular network operating system. Previously, Pluribus only supported two Edgecore switches. The two companies have been working together since 2016. Data center infrastructure is transitioning from 10GbE to 25GbE connections from the server to the top-of-rack switch, along with 100GbE uplinks to the spine, to meet the growing application and bandwidth requirements. The five additional Edgecore white box switch models will help customers to meet these requirements, particularly for single-site and multi-site data center and private cloud networks. Under the partnership, Pluribus runs its modular network operating system, Netvisor One, and its cloud fabric on the Edgecore white box switches.
