Cumulus Networks provides the ideal underlay physical network
infrastructure for network virtualization, combining wire-rate gateway
services with low cost, standard-based, high capacity IP fabrics
By integrating gateway services with existing network virtualization solutions, Cumulus Linux enables simplified network orchestration, building on Cumulus Networks' ability to provide low cost, easy to manage datacenter solutions. It offers simplified operations of large-scale multi-tenant networks with one single point of management – VMware NSX – for virtual and physical ports.
Cumulus Linux enables high capacity IP fabrics on industry-standard networking hardware. VMware NSX network virtualization will decouple logical networks from the underlying physical infrastructure. Together, these solutions can offer significant savings in both
“With VMware NSX™ integration, we are helping to drive the networking industry forward with flexible, affordable solutions that adapt to our customer needs,” said JR Rivers, co-founder and CEO of Cumulus Networks. "Building on the incredible response we've had with Cumulus Linux, we are excited to bring this latest iteration to our customers and provide them with even faster, simpler, and more cost effective networking.”
Cumulus Linux’s Layer 2 gateway services offer wire-rate performance, leveraging the latest Broadcom Trident 2 chipset with hardware VXLAN support. Wire-rate gateway services, combined with Cumulus Networks’ high capacity IP fabric, enable a faster underlay network for network virtualization.
Cumulus Networks emerged from stealth in June to unveil Cumulus Linux, the first true, full-featured Linux operating system for datacenter networking.
