Cumulus Linux 2.0 Updates Network Silicon Support

Cumulus Networks is out this with the the second major public iteration of its namesake Linux distribution that is purpose built as a bare metal network operating system.

Cumulus Networks emerged earlier this year with its first public release. The company’s offering is built around the premise that a physical network switch and a network operating system can be two independent efforts. The goal is to further enable Software Defined Networking (SDN) and enable greater agility for network administrators.
