The Pensando
Services Platform

A New Way of Thinking About Cloud Infrastructure

The heart of the Pensando platform is our own custom, programmable P4 processor we call Capri.


Capri is optimized to execute a software stack delivering cloud, compute, network, storage, and security services at cloud scale with minimal latency, jitter and very low power requirements ([email protected]).

Capri is easily installed in any standard server via the Pensando Distributed Services Card (DSC).


The DSC provides software-defined services at the server edge, eliminating an assortment of discrete appliances throughout the data center and simplifying IT operations.


The Pensando DSC additionally enables pervasive network visibility using its hardware bi-directional flow streaming and traffic mirroring capabilities.

The Pensando Policy and Services Manager (PSM) delivers central, lifecycle management, enterprise-grade security and unmatched visibility at every level of the software stack.


The PSM exposes always-on telemetry and deep end-to-end observability, across the entire environment, integrating with popular analytics, orchestration and management tools via open API’s.

Pensando for the Enterprise

The massive expansion in the number and diversity of applications, as well as an explosion in the amount of data being generated and transported through enterprise data centers, has pushed the architectural limits of modern IT infrastructure to its breaking point. Traditional “scale-up” approaches – where infrastructure services are embedded into top-of-rack switches, networking and security appliances – are no longer able to keep up, making performance, agility and scale limitations a fact of life for many businesses.

Pensando Systems was founded on the belief that there has to be a better way to address these complex issues. We have taken a ground up approach to build a platform that gives enterprises the unique ability to drive cloud-like agility, security and operational simplicity across their entire infrastructure with unmatched scale and performance.

Pensando for Public Cloud Providers

As cloud infrastructure growth continues to accelerate, the performance, scalability and functionality demands on cloud providers will not cease. A next-generation public cloud architecture with Pensando’s Distributed Services Card as the foundation, will enable the reliability, flexibility and visibility needed to deliver next generation cloud services. This coupled with orders of magnitude improvement in scalability and performance, gives any cloud provider the ability to not just compete with, but beat, the leading hyperscale providers today.
