Cloud Orchestration

Automation is just the first wave as organizations build private clouds for managing their virtualized environments across heterogeneous setups, where all the capabilities need to be aggregated effectively.

The Cumulus Linux architecture empowers customers to build custom orchestration tools or integrate with many open source options such as OpenStack, CloudStack or specific pre-integrated vendor options that are available in the industry.
The key features desired in a cloud orchestration software are integration of cloud capabilities to simplify, automate and optimize service deployment.

Big Data

Hadoop is one of the most disruptive recent innovations in enterprise IT, and its use is extending from high-performance computing and research organizations to enterprises who are setting up cloud environments.
Hadoop is an open source project that offers a powerful distributed platform to store and manage big data.
Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) is designed to be a scalable, fault-tolerant, distributed storage system that works closely with MapReduce on commodity servers.
Cumulus Networks shares this vision of having network infrastructure run on standard open networking hardware, and supports the Hadoop environment with Cumulus Linux, the networking operating system for open networking.

Data Center Automation

Cumulus Linux is the first full-featured Linux OS. It enables users to take advantage of the latest Linux applications and automation tools by providing a platform for delivering new levels of agility, scalability and flexibility to the modern data center.
By extending a standardized automation toolset from your compute environment into the networking world, one can automate the complete operational lifecycle of network devices from configuration and provisioning to policy-based change management.

Data Center Monitoring & Analytics

Our infrastructure and typical networks are a grand central of information. Having the ability to monitor everything and gather that intelligence to build a self-healing proactive network is the ideal scenario for a network architect.
Customers prefer to monitor everything mainly for simplicity, convergence and control if the economics permit.
Cumulus Linux’s open framework creates a very transparent and easy platform for partners and customers to leverage third party agents, build extensions, make enhancements and contribute them back to the community.

Network Virtualization Overlays

Cumulus Linux drives the bare metal networking paradigm by leveraging industry standard hardware and the advancements in merchant silicon. With the interest in overlays and customers demanding workload mobility, a centralized pane of glass for managing virtualized and non-virtualized workloads has become essential.
Software overlays have been unable to address all workloads and the limited visibility from overlays into physical networks make it hard to provision, automate and troubleshoot networks.



VMware vSphere is a cloud operating system that can manage large pools of virtualized computing infrastructure, including software and hardware.
Cumulus Linux was designed specifically to help customers scale their virtualization strategies. vSphere ensures that workloads with different policy requirements can coexist and still be treated appropriately.
The direct benefit of this approach is a higher server consolidation ratio, since servers can be consolidated based on workload and resource requirements instead of policy compliance requirements.
