Cumulus in the Cloud

Cumulus in the Cloud is a virtual data center where you can try open networking for free and evaluate the latest innovations from Cumulus Networks.

Evaluating new technologies can be time consuming.

Cumulus in the Cloud is a free, personal, virtual data center that provides a low-effort way to learn how open, web-scale technologies improve network designs and operations. Your virtual data center consists of two racks with two dual-homed servers connected with a leaf-spine network. The infrastructure can be personalized with Mesos/Marathon or OpenStack as well as left unconfigured as a "blank slate".

You can access your data center via web browser to:

  • Directly interact with the elements with the jump server console
  • Access the Cumulus NetQ telemetry server and Mesos/OpenStack user interface
  • Get started exploring Cumulus Networks technologies in a solution-oriented deployment
