On day two of Networking Field Day, Pluribus Networks gave us a rundown on what is possible with their Netvisor OS, whitebox hardware, and a distributed architecture. I was impressed with the flexibility of the solution, but like any design choice, there are some limitations to be aware of.
As a relative newcomer to the Pluribus world, I wanted to know what Pluribus was made of. The answer?
- Whitebox (or Pluribus branded) switch hardware
- Layer 3 connectivity between switches
