Cumulus Linux is commercially available through a perpetual pricing model, giving customers the right to use Cumulus Linux for the lifetime of the Open Networking hardware it runs on. The costs listed are on a per-switch basis and volume discounts may be available. Contact your sales rep or channel partner for more information.
Cumulus Linux is a perpetual license, giving customers the right to use it for the entire duration of the Open Networking hardware it runs on. Combined with the license, customers can purchase Software Updates and Support for 1-, 3-, and 5-year terms.
Yes, customers with existing perpetual licenses can co-term their additional perpetual licenses.
Without an active Software Updates and Support contract, customers will be unable to take advantage of any software updates, upgrades, and security fixes; nor can they contact the Cumulus Networks support team.
Active support gives customers full access to Cumulus Linux updates and our 24/7 enterprise class support team, which are essential to running a mission critical production environment. Software Updates and Support includes:
Yes, renewal of lapsed support will take effect retroactively from the day your original term expired.Example: If a customer’s support expires on June 15 and is renewed on September 1, the support renewal will be retroactively dated June 15.

No, starting January 18, 2016, we introduced a perpetual licensing model and retired the subscription licensing model.
