Pluribus Open Netvisor Linux (ONVL) for Dell Open Networking (ON) Enterprise Edition is designed to run your Layer 2 and Layer 3 networking both more efficiently and at a lower cost than traditional switching infrastructure. ONVL Enterprise Edition on Dell is a disaggregated best-of-breed solution. ONVL literally is Linux, and Dell ON Ethernet switches are designed to deploy modern workloads and applications for the open networking era.
Pluribus Networks advances software-defined networking (SDN) through Open Netvisor Linux (ONVL), the industry's most programmable, open source-based network operating system. ONVL is based upon the Pluribus Virtualization-Centric Fabric (VCF) architecture, a proven approach to understanding flow, rapidly responding to business needs and securing your data. Pluribus ONVL combines the benefits of Linux with a traditional CLI (Command Line Interface) paired with programmability (C, RESTful API) and DevOps tools (e.g. Ansible) for agility and automation via a single point of management.
The Dell ON Ethernet Switches, based on the latest generation chipsets from Broadcom, are designed to implement extremely cost effective, non-blocking, pay-as-you-grow leaf-spine architecture with predictable low-latency thus dramatically improving workload management and network agility.
In combination with the Dell Open Networking (ON) switching portfolio, ONVL provides best-in-class switching economics. The deployment flexibility is guaranteed by Pluribus ONVL full L2/L3 protocol suite providing complete interoperability with the legacy networking infrastructure - allowing for easy insertion into brownfield deployments.
