Oracle Solaris 11 and Pluribus - application-awareness in the cloud

Talk to any executive of any leading enterprise company and they will tell you that they are embracing cloud computing for the future of their business.  And with the rapid growth of turnkey cloud computing solutions, the network fabric carrying the application packets is emerging as a key focus to drive greater performance, reliability, and efficiency of the application.  Networks need to be able to prioritize packet flow according to the importance of the application.  So if an application is of high importance to their business, the network fabric should be able to know that, and provide the necessary resource to ensure high performance of that application is delivered.

Oracle Solaris 11.2 and Pluribus Networks are providing an integrated solution for doing just that.
You can read about it in a recently release solution brief: 

Oracle Solaris 11 and Pluribus Networks - Enabling Application-Driven SDN in the Cloud

This is an integrated solution for controlling the network in real-time, by combining Oracle Solaris 11.2 built-in application driven software-defined networking (SDN) with Pluribus Networks bare-metal network Hypervisor.   This solution offers fine-grained QoS services, allowing for different tenants, applications, and even flow within applications, to be assigned SLAs to leverage the high-end router-class traffic manager and the network processing unit on the Pluribus platform. Applications become network aware so they can monitor congestions, errors, and latency across the fabric, allowing them to dynamically adjust their network resource requests.

In addition, there is a short (6 min) video interview on this topic with Founder and CTO of Pluribus Networks, Sunay Tripathi:  Oracle and Pluribus Ally on Software Defined Networking
