Plexxi, a pioneer in Hyperconverged Networking (HCN) and Decision Lab – a big data and engineering firm – has announced a new strategic partnership where the companies will work together to extend Plexxi’s HCN software to include real-time analytics for the Plexxi network fabric.
Through this partnership, the companies will co-develop an integrated set of software tools that collect fabric data path and control path statistics and provide users with analytics dashboards that will present customers with critical insights into their Plexxi data center network.
“We are very excited to work with Decision Lab to bring real-time analytics to the Plexxi HCN fabric,” said Rich Napolitano, CEO of Plexxi. “Their unique expertise in scale-out architectures, large scale data collection and visualization, and machine learning will enable Plexxi to offer real-time insights to our customers at any scale. We welcome Decision Lab into the next-generation data center ecosystem that will enable users to realize reduced operational complexity and cost.”
Decision Lab and Plexxi are coming together to deliver a platform that can not only be deployed quickly, but also scale across a customer’s data center infrastructure in public cloud, private cloud or on bare metal hardware.
“Plexxi has built an intelligent network fabric that is under software control,” said Nathan Necaise, CEO of Decision Lab. “Their workflow logic and rich API set enable cloud builders and partners like us to tightly integrate applications with Plexxi network functions to deliver a complete, seamless solution that customers can deploy quickly and scale incrementally as needed.”
