Next week, our co-founder, CTO and EVP of products and technology, Dave Husak, will be heading to Arrow’s Internet of Things Immersions Conference to participate in two panels. The event will be held on March 26 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA.

We got into the Halloween spirit here at Plexxi—check out this Plexxi pumpkin carved by our talented marketing manager, Khoa Ma!

Plexxi Pulse — VMworld 2014 is Right Around the Corner

We’re a few short days away from VMworld’s return to the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Our team will be in booth 747 (hence the jumbo-jet below),  to demo our products and answer any questions you might have about our products – including the new datacenter transport fabric and Big Data fabric. Stop by the booth or send us a tweet to @PlexxiInc and we’ll catch up for a quick chat.   You never know exactly what to expect at VMworld, but our own Mike Bushong took a few educated guesses this week on the Plexxi blog. We’ll revisit his thoughts after the conference to see where ... (more)

Plexxi Pulse – Big Moves for our West Coast Team

If you’ve been keeping up with Plexxi, you know we’re proud of our roots on the East Coast. However, we have exciting news this week for the West Coast contingent of our team. Our San Francisco team has just moved to into the communal office space called WeWork (the SOMA one, not the Golden Gate one). Stay tuned for more as we get settled in there. In this week’s PlexxiTube video, Dan Backman comments on how Plexxi’s switching solution uses an SDN controller called Plexxi Control. He answers a couple poignant questions: Where does the Plexxi Controller run? Is it a standalone pi... (more)
