Monash University is one of Australia's leading universities and ranks among the world's top 100. They are one of only eight research-intensive universities in Australia and one of the fastest growing universities in world research rankings.

Monash University's research center was looking to refresh their data center in a way that would enable their researchers to innovate more efficiently. They needed a software-defined network solution that could support a high-performance computing environment, out-of-band management, private cloud and OpenStack. With Cumulus Networks, Monash University was able to democratize research, security and innovation with a Cumulus Linux network operating system. Watch the video learn how the Cumulus consulting team helped Monash University get up and running in only three weeks. 

Tight deadline? No problem. Cumulus Networks helps Monash university migrate their entire data center.
