Hyper-converged infrastructure

Breaking traditional silos

Hyper-converged Infrastructure is a transformational approach that combines simplicity and scale-out by eliminating dedicated storage nodes while also providing data resiliency via distributed storage software. By coupling our network operating system, Cumulus Linux, with hyper-converged systems, businesses can break free from the traditional siloed approach and can simplify and aggregate compute and storage resources.

Building software-defined data center

With increased adoption of off-the-shelf hardware, open networking and hyper-converged have pulled intelligence into the software layer, making it easy for the operators to realizes their software-defined data center dreams. Cumulus Networks and our modern storage partners share the vision of presenting turnkey solutions to customers that are easy to deploy and scale.

Complete web-scale environment

With a Cumulus Linux based, scale-out approach, the entire networking stack follows the same design principles as compute to focus on scale-out, simplicity and automation readiness. The consumption model of an integrated stack through “Data Center in a Rack” can be easily driven through the hyper-converged solutions with open networking to help customers deploy web-scale architectures with ease.
