Pluribus UNUM™ Unified Management, Automation, and Analytics Platform Software is an application portal developed by Pluribus Networks.
Pluribus UNUM is an agile, multi-functional web management portal that enhances the intrinsic automation of the Unified Cloud Fabric architecture. It combines an elastic big data database and intelligent analytics engine with an intuitive and consistent user interface that allows seamless navigation across fully integrated management and analysis modules.
Pluribus UNUM liberates network operators from the complexity of provisioning and operating a complex network, or groups of networks, by automating the complete network life cycle from implementation to operation and optimization, enabling intent-based network operations with vastly reduced deployment times.
Pluribus UNUM Management Platform
UNUM enables the network administrator to extract analytical value from the telemetry data reported by the network switches powered by the Pluribus Networks Netvisor® ONE network operating system.
Once data is collected, UNUM relies upon a modern search engine database infrastructure to store, aggregate, filter, correlate and visualize vast amounts of data in real-time as well as with a powerful time machine functionality.
The Pluribus UNUM portal provides a collection of feature-rich applications that manages and orchestrates the gathering and presentation of network analytics using various types of collectors and reporting software.
The UNUM applications rely primarily on features of the Netvisor ONE, such as vFLOWs, mirrors, and connections statistics, and can also provide analytics in a non-Pluribus environment.
At a high-level, UNUM supports the following deployment scenarios:
•Netvisor ONE as a mirror switch; an out-of-band Pluribus switch is configured as a mirror in either an existing Pluribus-switched network or a non-Pluribus-switched network.
•Netvisor ONE as an inband switch; stats are pulled directly from configured switches such as connections, vports, ports, tunnels and, vflow-stats.
•Collectors gather network analytics and feed data into the UNUM analytics store(s):
▪The Collector uses the vREST API to gather the analytics data from Netvisor.
UNUM manages the following applications:
•Common Infrastructure – a centralized portal launches other applications, provides authentication to the corporate directory (using LDAP), and provides configuration of standard settings.
•Insight Analytics – this application provides reporting and Search capabilities on data collected from UNUM collectors.
•Switch Analytics – Switch Analytics contains a feature-rich set of management tools providing Traffic Monitoring and Notification services with exceptional drill-down capabilities.
•Fabric Manager – Fabric Manager contains a feature-rich set of management tools providing configuration tools for Layer 1, Layer 2, and Layer 3 services as well as Security, Monitoring, Analytical, and Service features.
