Pluribus and upcoming network innovations
Sunay recently blogged about "Network 2.0: Virtualization without limits", where he's written about a Network OS that controlls all switches, treating the network "exactly as one giant resource pool".
Pluribus are quiet about what they're doing, but Sunay has said that they "a network hypervisor that has semantics similar to a tight coupled cluster but controls a collection of switches and scales from one instance to hundred plus instances".
This is purely speculation on my part, but I do wonder if OpenVSwitch would be the management layer, or perhaps integrate/interoperate with Pluribus' NetVizor.
In any case, the future does look exciting :)
