  2. Thanks for the kind words about our technology here at Pluribus Networks. Our founders come from a server background, and while it may seem to be a handicap it is actually an advantage. The reason for this is that it allows a fresh perspective and it is the new set of eyes that often sees things overlooked by those who have been doing the same thing for years or, in some cases, decades. Case in point – with the proliferation of VMs in the data center, you might want a switch that can easily scale beyond whatever TCAM allocation you got. Many switches now are limited to roughly 100k MAC addresses, others can cope with up to 288k. With our approach, TCAM is treated like hardware cache, not an absolute limit on scale, so should you find yourself needing to build a 500k MAC POD, we’ll be there for you. Sometimes that fresh perspective helps.

    Once again, big thanks to you and the rest of the #NFD9 folks and to Steve Foskett, who once again proved that not only can he run a good network event, but also that he knows how to throw a good party.
