Pluribus Raises $23M for Hardware Accelerated Network Virtualization

Pluribus Networks, a start-up based in Palo Alto, California, raised $23 million in series C funding for its hardware-accelerated network virtualization platform for private and public cloud data centers.

Pluribus 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 includes highly-optimized Server-Switch hardware along with a a programmable, distributed network operating system (Netvisor).  The goal is zero-touch provisioning of virtual machines and network services. Pluribus also provides an ability to store full data flows and sessions in each of its F64 Server-Switches. The company has said that across a fabric of F64 Server-Switches, tens of Gigabytes per second of real-time analytics can be captured and processed.

The new funding round was led by Menlo Ventures with the participation of existing investors New Enterprise Associates, Mohr Davidow Ventures, and others.
