Cumulus® Linux®, Bringing the Linux Revolution to Networking

  1. 1. Why a Bare Metal Switch Running Cumulus® Linux®
  2. 2. Disaggregation in Compute World  Linux Fueled the Data Center Compute Revolution Years Ago Servers: Legacy Systems Servers: Open Ecosystem Complex monolithic systems that lock in and don’t scale Agile, open, scalable with unprecedented cost savings
  3. 3. This is Happening in Networking Now  Merchant Silicon and Bare Metal Switches Enables the Same Paradigm Shift in the Network Now Traditional Network Gear New Paradigm Complex monolithic systems that lock in and don’t scale Disaggregate the Networking Gear from the Network OS
  4. 4. Enabled by a Standard Networking OS  The Missing Piece: Cumulus® Linux®, Bringing the Linux Revolution to Networking
  5. 5. Resulting in Substantial Benefits  The Results for Your Software Defined Data Center Faster Easier  Delivers high capacity fabrics with unprecedented price-performance  Simplifies orchestration, automation and monitoring of networks  Enables next generation architectures  Consistent Linux-based toolsets for network and compute  Enables the next wave of scale, collaboration and innovation Affordable  Lower OPEX/CAPEX  Break free from vendor lock-in  Enables large ecosystem of native Linux apps
  6. 6. ONIE — Open Network Install Environment Modern, Efficient Installer Industry Support  •  Enables ODM ecosystem  Open source  Well-documented Configure management Ethernet interface IPv6 ND, DHCPv4, Static IP Address  • Discover OS installation source HTTP, FTP, TFTP, SCP  Fetch installation file  Install OS and reboot ONIE
  7. 7. Cumulus® Linux® Best of Networking and Linux Come Together  IPv4/IPv6 routing and bridging  Modern datacenter & network orchestration, unifying common functions, scaling network specific ones  Linux operations and troubleshooting A multi-platform operating system for networking hardware that makes building, managing and automating massive-capacity next-generation datacenter networks simple.
