Scalability

Web-scale companies like Facebook and Google developed and adopted open networking principles to build a scalable networking infrastructure that now with the help of Cumulus Linux, customers of all sizes have been able to take advantage of.

To eliminate layer 2 complexities, customers like Shapeways and BlueJeans adopted layer 3 Clos topology, a non-blocking multistage architecture that allows them to easily troubleshoot, automate, scale and evolve their data center network.

Using Cumulus Linux and automation tools made growth uncomplicated for these customers. Due to the native automation support of Cumulus Linux, BlueJeans and others were able to leverage automation scripts to quickly build out data centers and make fabric wide changes with little impact.
