Making it easier to deploy, configure and scale
OpenStack is all about making the data center easy to deploy, configure, and scale, while keeping it economical. To build OpenStack clusters, customers continue to take advantage of the open compute and storage standards but until recently networking was the bottleneck — it was isolated, and hard for Linux system administrators to learn. Due to traditional networking vendors using proprietary, vendor-specific software, OpenStack clusters were only as flexible as the Top of Rack (ToR) switch.
Linux all the way down
Cumulus Networks' native Linux Network OS (NOS), Cumulus Linux, makes it easy and economical to deploy, configure and manage because the entire stack now runs Linux. The data plane and control plane are now “speaking the same language” without complex compute APIs or networking CLIs.
Learn about how Cumulus Linux can simplify your OpenStack deployment through this quick video with Nolan Leake.
Leverage common Linux development tools
With common Linux development and DevOps tools, it's simple to collaborate across technology silos with wide Linux expertise and build pre-packaged automation templates/workflows for implementing best practices and minimizing transition time. Download this automation script to get started.
