Roll out the red carpet and get your acceptance speech ready — no, Rocket Turtle hasn’t won an Oscar (yet), but we do have some exciting news. Cumulus Networks is happy to announce that we have been inducted into the JPMorgan Chase Hall of Innovation, which recognizes select emerging tech companies for their innovation, business value and disruptive nature. The Hall of Innovation Award was presented at the 9th Annual J.P. Morgan Technology Innovation Symposium in Menlo Park, California.

Cumulus Networks has received this honor after providing JPMorgan Chase with our NOS Cumulus Linux. In fact, Cumulus Networks is currently the networking standard for Gaia, JPMorgan Chase’s private cloud, and is also pursuing other use cases within the firm. Matthew Liste, Head of Cloud Engineering, stated that “Cumulus Networks has helped the firm reduce capital expenditures, optimize data center network costs, and bring infrastructure to the market faster.” That’s the power of web-scale networking!

When asked for comment about our partnership with JPMorgan Chase, our fearless leader and CEO Josh Leslie had this to say: “For a company with the size and reputation of JPMorgan Chase, it is critical that the network operates with efficiency to keep the business running as smoothly as possible…We take great pride in partnering with JPMorgan Chase to help the company access a scalable, efficient architecture approach, so we feel extremely honored to be recognized with this award and look forward to introducing more companies to the power of web-scale networking.”

We are incredibly humbled by and grateful for all of the support that our customers, investors, and fellow champions of web-scale networking have given us. It’s your belief in our mission and philosophy that helps us continue to be innovative. We also would like to thank the Cumulus Networks team for all of their hard work and dedication to making web-scale technology accessible, affordable, and boundary-breaking.
