Cumulus Networks Solution Exchange Program

Cumulus Linux as a Platform

For modern data center architectures, the ecosystem is more important than ever, enabling innovation at a much faster pace. Cumulus Networks is unleashing the power of open networking with the Cumulus Linux operating system and a business model that leverages the OS as a platform. The Technology Ecosystem Partner (TEP) Program offers a comprehensive Open Linux framework and toolset enabling partners to successfully build, market and deliver seamless solutions through collaborative efforts within this rapidly growing ecosystem.

The Cumulus Networks TEP program enables ecosystem expansion, fueling industry innovation and additional solutions for customers across a wide range of use cases. The growth in solutions means greater choice and value for customers for a broadening array of data center challenges when compared to vendor-locked networking stacks.

Our vision is to enable the world of open networking and help customers adopt the blueprint for the modern data center. Fundamental to this vision is enabling the community and empowering the loosely coupled ecosystem. By creating Cumulus Linux to be a platform and not a gatekeeper, we are seeing affinity with a broad array of partners, evangelists and communities. We are excited to see this vision bloom to ultimately make both our partners and
our customers successful
