Pluribus Networks, Inc.

What We Do
Pluribus Networks delivers software-defined networking as an open application platform in todays
data centers. The companys flagship product, Netvisor, is the industrys first distributed network
hypervisor operating system, converging compute, network, storage and virtualization with an open,
programmable approach.

Why We Do It
We give our customers an unprecedented level of visibility and control over their network. Our
approach brings the new application economy to the network by separating the networking
hardware, including white-box switches, from network applications delivered by Pluribus and by
third-parties. Key benefits of the companys Software Defined Networking (SDN) programmable
platform include: service provisioning speed and agility; network flexibility and holistic management;
better and more granular security; enhanced application performance management through realtime visibility (and the ability to record this data for forensics purposes); efficiency and lower
operating expenses; virtualized network services, and lowered CAPEX through network
disaggregation enabling freedom from legacy vendor hardware refresh cycles.

How We Do It
The Pluribus Netvisor abstracts the underlying merchant silicon from the SDN applications by
tightly coupling the switching silicon and high-performance compute. This enables fusing of the
physical and the virtual, the overlay and the underlay and permits IT to program the network like a
server. We support both Intel and Broadcom switching silicon via both Pluribus-sourced hardware
platforms as well as those offered by 3rd parties.

Major Customers
A sampling of customers includes Oracle, CloudFlare, the Stanford School of Engineering, and
Lucera. We also have more than 20 large enterprise and service provider customers via TIBCO, an
OEM channel partner. Super Micro Computer, Inc. is also an OEM of the Netvisor operating
system. Pluribus customers are supported by a 24x7 global support organization.
