Pluribus Networks Raises $23M Series C

PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pluribus Networks, the leader in hardware-accelerated network virtualization for private and public cloud datacenters, has closed a $23M Series C funding led by Menlo Ventures and joined by existing investors New Enterprise Associates, Mohr Davidow Ventures, and others. The funding will be used to meet customer demand for deploying the company's production-ready software-defined virtualized Fabric offering today.

Pluribus Networks was founded in 2010 and closed its previous Series B ($17.5M) in April of 2011. The company has been generating revenue and announced in September that it had partnered with TIBCO Software Inc. to deliver TIBCO Enterprise Message Service™ Appliance and TIBCO FTL® Message Switch.

Pluribus Networks Netvisor® is a programmable, distributed network operating system that runs on Pluribus Networks' highly-optimized Server-Switch™ hardware. Netvisor provides a platform for fabric-based computing that enables applications to move into the network, and to serve both physical and virtual network infrastructure. The solution is highly modular and fault tolerant with a self-healing design that enables extremely high operational flexibility and makes zero-touch provisioning of virtual machines and network services a reality.

"Pluribus Networks' Server-Switch architecture is a revolutionary re-thinking of the infrastructure required for today's new datacenters. The need for a virtualized and programmable network fabric is imperative to dynamically allocate and manage connectivity and data flows," said Mark Siegel, Managing Director at Menlo Ventures. "We spent a lot of time looking at the SDN sector and no other company comes close to Pluribus in functionality or performance."

Availability

The Pluribus Networks Netvisor® solution is currently available to select customers on the Pluribus Networks F64 Series platform.
