Founded by veteran networking engineers from Cisco and VMware, Cumulus has developed the first true, full-featured Linux operating system for networking hardware. Just as Linux transformed the economics and accelerated the pace of innovation on the server side of the data center, Cumulus Linux is doing the same for the network side. We are radically reducing the cost and complexity of operating modern data center networks and enabling the true promise of the software defined data center.
By providing a common network operating system, Cumulus Networks enables IT organizations to create a more cloud-like IT infrastructure that is less expensive, higher capacity and less complicated. And one that is able to support a wide variety of business applications with great agility and efficiency.
As a result, IT organizations can take advantage of the substantial price-performance benefits of bare metal hardware as well as the agility and automation of the new generation of “software-defined” data center software.
