Great visibility means better management
Modern data centers are are a Grand Central of information. Network architects designing data centers on web-scale methodology would prefer to have the ability to monitor everything and have a self-healing proactive network, resulting in a simple, converged and controlled environment. Cumulus Linux's open framework creates a very transparent and easy platform for partners and customers to leverage third-party agents, build extensions, make enhancements and contribute them back to the community. It’s the ideal platform for leveraging intelligent network monitoring and analytics.
Cumulus Networks allows network operators to always have context (who, where, when) for anything new that arises and understand the types of information to gather and analyze for better design. Creating convergence through use of existing tools and Cumulus Linux provides standardization across the compute and network teams for operational efficiency. Finally, having 100% visibility is a fundamental prerequisite for closed-loop control execution in any infrastructure operations center.
