Our mission

We are in the age of digital transformation. Businesses are prioritizing speed, quality and agility in their data centers in order to keep up with booming growth. But these same businesses are tethered to infrastructure that’s complex, proprietary and difficult to scale.

85% of decision makers said they were still several years away from reaching the full potential of digital transformation, mainly due to their legacy infrastructure.1

It’s time for a change in data center networking. It’s time to give it some S.O.U.L — simple, open, untethered, Linux. That's where Cumulus Networks comes in.
