A recent press release reports, “Cumulus Networks, the leaders in building open, modern and scalable networks today announced availability of Cumulus Linux and NetQ for enterprises looking to extend the benefits of open and disaggregated networking from their data centers to their campus networks using a single fabric. Inspired by their peers leveraging open networking in the data center, enterprises are now seeking to leverage automation, DevOps practices including Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC), deeper network visibility and standards-based infrastructure with a two-tier leaf-spine architecture within their campus environments. By modernizing the campus network, Cumulus Networks provides a single fabric to remove complexity, simplify operations and improve reliability and performance.”
The release continues, “Campus networks have traditionally been hindered by complexity, legacy architectures and a myriad of unnecessary features. Together, Cumulus Networks and Dell EMC will be able to simplify campus network architectures by offering a uniform operating model that streamlines operations through automation and orchestration, reduces operational expenses by minimizing time to troubleshoot, and eliminates costly support renewals from legacy vendors. ‘Our 1,800 enterprise customers have made it clear that they want the ability to use the same tools for automation, orchestration and management for their Cumulus Networks data centers and extend the benefits to their campus networks. This opens the door to a simplified network that is open, feature-rich, flexible and resilient,’ said Partho Mishra, President and Chief Product Officer at Cumulus Networks.”
