Pluribus Networks Expands to Europe with Deployments in the UK, France, Netherlands, Italy and Portugal

European customers in finance, aerospace, telco, energy, and gaming along with four EMEA channel partners join the Pluribus roster

London, UK - 2nd April 2014 - Pluribus Networks, the company that brings together compute, network, storage, and virtualization into a single platform, announced today that the company is entering the EMEA market only weeks after launching the Pluribus Freedom solution in the U.S.

The European expansion is already well underway with a number of European deployments in finance, aerospace, telco, energy and gaming in the UK, France, Netherlands, Italy and Portugal. The company signed its first European distributor, Big Technology, a spin-off of Exclusive Networks, earlier this year. It is now strengthening the channel in Europe by adding partnerships with four leading networking resellers: IGX, LAN2LAN, LATO Networks and Telesys.

"To establish an EMEA presence with growing headcount and office space right after its US launch is testimony to Pluribus' commitment to being a driver of SDN adoption in Europe," commented Jason Dance, managing director of Big Technology. "We are already actively talking to potential customers looking to bring hyperconvergence into their infrastructures today and Pluribus is a great fit for them."

"We are excited to be entering the European market and build on our early customer successes with the help of our partners," said Kumar Srikantan, president and CEO of Pluribus Networks. "Our innovative inNetwork services architecture and value proposition, coupled with our global service and support capabilities, will enable both enterprises and service providers in Europe to derive significant savings in capital and operational expenses."

The Pluribus Networks offering includes the Freedom Server-Switch product line, the industry's most programmable network services platform based on off-the-shelf, open components to truly program, virtualize and automate the network just like a server, paving the way for the unification of DevOps and NetOps and associated cost savings. It leverages the Pluribus Networks Netvisor, the industry's first and only bare-metal, distributed network hypervisor operating systems with full integration of merchant silicon switch chips into the server hypervisor. This is backed-up by Pluribus Network Freedom Care, offering customers seamless 24x7x365 global support. The Pluribus support team is only comprised of escalation engineers; there is no scripted "helpdesk" to slow the progress.

Key targets for the Freedom Server-Switch include deployment as a cloud controller in an OpenStack implementation. Per a recent IDG Connect survey, 84 percent of enterprises seeking to deploy private clouds will go down this path. The system is also optimized for inNetwork analytics, delivering a rich set of monitoring and analytics capabilities at a lower cost than dedicated monitoring fabrics. A third focus area is the deployment of infrastructure-centric applications, leveraged by partners such as TIBCO and, in the future, by Layer 4-7 virtualized appliance vendors.

Notes to editors:
IGX Global's EMEA managing director, Dave Robinson, commented: "IGX focuses on providing the highest quality technical resources and solutions to our customers. With our in-depth knowledge of the financial services market in London and across Europe, I see disruptive networking technology such as Pluribus' become a software-defined cornerstone of the networking infrastructure of today and tomorrow. As an engineer at heart, I am excited about IGX being part of this networking revolution."

Peter Newman, LATO Networks managing director: "Convergence is a hot topic for LATO Networks' customers and the Pluribus products are a spot-on trend for the future of networking that our clients envisage."

Gary Duke, LAN2LAN company director: "Networking is our business and bringing the Pluribus technology into our portfolio allows our customers to embark on the next networking wave where the compute, network, storage and virtualization converge."
