Removing the guess work with complete access to the source code.

With traditional, legacy network providers, an organization has very limited access to the source code, meaning you’re dependent on a third party for troubleshooting and support.

Since Cumulus is open and based in Linux, you have full access to most of the code. We believe this empowers the user to troubleshoot under his/her own expectations and get support from the community quickly. This means less downtime, quicker bug fixes and continually optimized code.






Would you like to be able to provision a large-scale data center in minutes?

Not really into manually provisioning your network box-by-box? We’re not either. Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) enables network devices to be quickly deployed in large-scale environments.


Automation as a force multiplier

We already discussed how ZTP allows you to handle initial configurations in minutes, but initial configuration is just one facet of automation.

We can effortlessly utilize common automation tools like Ansible, Puppet and Chef as well as uncommon ones or custom scripts to better support your application. You can even install Ansible directly on a Cumulus Linux switch and use your out-of-band switch to deploy Ansible playbooks against the rest of the infrastructure — how’s that for doing double duty?
