Oracle and Pluribus Networks to build OpenStack plugins for SDN 

The technology access agreement between the two companies will give Pluribus Networks the opportunity to develop and test a number of OpenStack-managed SDN technologies.

As a result, any customers using Oracle Solaris and Pluribus Networks Netvisor will be able to use OpenStack plugins to manage their cloud environments.

Customers can manage Oracle Solaris 11 compute nodes using the OpenStack Nova plug-in, Pluribus Networks switches using the OpenStack Neutron plug-in, and Oracle Solaris-based ZS3 Series storage using the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance Cinder Driver.

Pluribus Networks has also certified Oracle Solaris 11 to run on its Freedom series Server-Switches.

“OpenStack is providing us with the ideal platform to expand our relationships with companies like Pluribus Networks and I’m very excited to see Oracle Solaris 11 now running on Pluribus Networks’ Freedom Server-Switches. This means customers can now take full advantage of the unique performance, scalability, efficiency and security features of Oracle Solaris in their network infrastructure,” said Markus Flierl, VP, Oracle Solaris.

By running Oracle Solaris 11 on Pluribus switches, users can re-provision their virtual networking services from compute nodes to networking, thereby maximizing performance without increasing latency.

“We are very excited about expanding our relationship with Oracle,” added Kumar Srikantan, CEO, Pluribus Networks. “Oracle Solaris 11 is providing us with unique performance, scalability, efficiency and security features that help us differentiate our products. For instance, we can now take advantage of Oracle Solaris 11 security features like the immutable root file systems and ZFS encryption.”
