Open Network, OpenStack

Every large organization and managed service provider (MSP) is on a journey to attain the critical tenets of cloud.  From self-service consumption to automation to pay-as-you-go economics, giants like AWS, Google and Microsoft are achieving massive benefits by adopting on-prem cloud solutions. In order to achieve competitive customer service, cloud service provider (CSP) networks must be agile, scalable, software-driven, cost-effective and able to address evolving business demands.

We’ve boiled down the five principles that CSPs use to design their web-scale networks. Find out how Cumulus Linux achieves all those principles, while significantly reducing cost and technical complexity.
