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.
