Cumulus Linux
Hardware Compatibility List

Cumulus Networks certifies Cumulus Linux operation for all products on the Hardware Compatibility List, HCL.  Cumulus Networks supports all products on the HCL, which may include RMA support for hardware under warranty. All platforms on the HCL must come with ONIE, the open install environment for bare metal network switches. See support policy for more details.  The HCL table provides the manufacturer, model number, description, and the associated supported Cumulus Linux release number.

* Future software release, subject to hardware availability

HCL Policy:

New generation of hardware platforms and hardware dependent capabilities will be introduced with a Cumulus Linux major release.  New manufacturer or hardware configuration derivatives will be added to the HCL with a Cumulus Linux minor release.

Hardware revisions may change over a product's lifetime and Cumulus Networks is not guaranteed to receive product change notifications from hardware partners.  Software support will continue for the part numbers listed in the HCL, but additional certification may be required for modified configurations.

Cumulus Networks may decide to remove systems from the HCL.  For example, HCL removal could occur in cases of obsolescence or a partner going out of business. Software support will continue for contract customers for their installed base of systems, noting that Cumulus Networks may not be able to resolve hardware related issues.
