Open networking software for the modern data centre
Cumulus is leading the transition of the data centre market from a closed and proprietary environment to one that embraces open, standards-based systems. Unlike anyone else in the market, they build networking products purely with Linux. Our customers can leverage its standard interfaces and rich ecosystem to achieve a new level of control of cost and operations — previously accessible only to the largest web-scale operators.
By transitioning to open networking, we believe organisations of all sizes can affordably build and efficiently operate their network like the world’s largest data centres. Our customers can run their data centre networks the way Google and Facebook have done for years — highly automated, flexible and efficient, without all the development time or expensive, specialised hardware. We call it web-scale networking.
