Pluribus Networks… Wait, where are we again?

Although he had followed the company for a while, Chris Marget appreciated an update on Pluribus Networks at Networking Field Day. While he appreciated the company’s use of Solaris to back Netvisor switching OS, the introduction of Netvisor on Linux is a welcome addition. It allows you to manage network devices using specific protocols through a single device via their Netvisor Fabric. One of the other standouts was Pluribus Networks’ “fantastic telemetry and flow analytics capabilities”.


KEMP Presented Some Interesting Features at NFD16

KEMP Technologies presented at Networking Field Day last week, and Chris Marget shares his thoughts on what he saw. The three features that stood out were the new ability to use KEMP’s UI to manage non-KEMP load balancers, easy service migrations between KEMP instances via vMotion, and their unique licensing model. Chris digs deeper into each, so make sure to read the full post!


Anuta Networks NCX: Overcoming Skepticism

Chris Marget thought he knew how the networking world worked. Getting various network vendors to play nice with each other required more art than science while editing a text configuration file. It took years of painful experience to be able to do this well. Then Chris saw Anuta Networks present their multi-vendor NCX orchestration, and changed his tune. Anuta claims it can work well between a lengthy list of vendors. They do this by not trying to make all features available, but to focus on a core set that will be useful to network engineers. Chris definitely liked what he saw at Tech Field Day.
