Hardware networking is easy

Software defined network

Cumulus Networks

The example of the successful network startup par excellence. In simple terms, Cumulus is a network operating system based on Debian Linux. But if you look at it more closely, it is much more than that. It is a network solution that the largest companies in the world trust. It can be operated on switch hardware from many manufacturers (DELL, HPE, Lenovo, Mellanox, Edgecore and many more). It is based on standards, all developments flow into the Linux kernel. It's easy to manage and automate using the same tools as your servers. It is perfectly optimized for a scalable Layer 3 environment and offers a large and robust feature set.

Mellanox may not be familiar to everyone in the Ethernet environment, but it should (and not just after the USD 6.9 billion takeover by NVIDIA). Mellanox is one of the few manufacturers who produce their own switch ASIC (CPU) and thus not only enable one of the best latency and throughput rates (400Gbit / s liner rate) on the market. They offer features such as native VXLAN and EVPN support as well as the Precision Time Protocol (PTP). In addition to the switches, Mellanox also produces its own 10, 25, 50, 100, 200Gbit Ethernet network cards. Mellanox RDMA (Remote Direct Memory Access) support has become an indispensable part of any large IT solution (Microsoft HyperV and Storage Space Direct, VMware vSphere and many more). The Mellanox switches are supplied with the Onyx operating system as standard, but can also be operated with Cumulus, Sonic and many other network operating systems. Cumulus and Mellanox are particularly well coordinated.
