All the resources you need to learn Linux for networking

Linux is the language of the data center, but in the past, the network has been siloed — running on proprietary software while the rest of the data center is standardized. With Linux networking, you can standardize your entire data center on Linux, reap the cost and efficiency benefits of disaggregation, and take your business innovation to the next level.
