Plexxi, a new player in software-defined networking (SDN), in June snapped up $20.1 million in funding from Lightspeed Venture Partners, Matrix Partners and Northbridge Venture, reaching a total of about $48.5 million in venture capital investment.

Cambridge, Mass.-based Plexxi has remained tight lipped about its product development. The company said the following in a June blog: “We’ve pulled back the covers a bit and revealed that we are working on an integrated hardware/software offering that allows data center operators to build and manage a network from the perspective of the needs of the application workloads, which we call affinity networking.”

The company promises to reveal more information at industry conferences, such as VMworld in August.
