Menlo Ventures finances Pluribus for SDN network fabric computing

In 2012, Menlo Ventures led a $23 million investment in Pluribus Networks, which offers network virtualization for private and public cloud data centers. The investment went into the company's NetVisor solution, which is a programmable, distributed network operating system that runs on the networks' switch hardware. The solution provides a platform for network fabric-based computing and supports both physical and virtual network infrastructure.

"The need for a virtualized and programmable network fabric is imperative to dynamically allocate and manage connectivity and data flows," said Mark Siegel, managing director at Menlo Ventures. "We spent a lot of time looking at the SDN sector, and no other company comes close to Pluribus in functionality or performance."
