Pluribus and Appcito Form Alliance

Pluribus Networks has formed a technology and marketing agreement with Appcito, makers of scalable Private Cloud based application services, such as load balancing, application traffic visibility and analytics and comprehensive application security including Web Application Firewall and DDoS detection.

The agreement enables end users to purchase and deploy Appcito’s application delivery solution upon the Pluribus Networks connectivity fabric itself, dramatically simplifying the deployment of advanced services, reducing the costs and extending advanced traffic management capabilities across the entire infrastructure.

“The public cloud has been developed to support the needs of modern computing, which emphasize the need to bring new services online quickly and securely in direct support of the fast-moving business. We enable organizations to create their own private clouds in the same way. Our SDN platform offers all of the same agility, adaptability, application awareness and security found in public offerings, but at a fraction of the cost, and goes far beyond the mere separation of control and data planes, as seen in other competitive SDN offerings,” said Kumar Srikantan, CEO of Pluribus Networks. “Most importantly, it’s a true open and scalable platform onto which higher-layer services can be deployed. Working together with Appcito, we are jointly demonstrating the marriage of our platform with their leading-edge load-balancing and security services. The combination of upper layer networking services with an open, extensible, and secure networking foundation makes the network more relevant to applications and to the business itself.”

“Today’s cloud computing has the same network challenges that existed in the past but now requires new cloud-adapted solution architectures and capacities in order to support and secure modern applications effectively,” said Peter Christy, Research Director, 451 Research. “Appcito and Pluribus each are excellent examples of forward-looking, cloud-centric products which do just this, and the integration of the two is proof that upper-level network services and the foundational network fabric can be married so that the combination is more than just the sum of the parts.”
