Cumulus Linux 2.0 expands breadth of networking hardware choices supported

Cumulus Networks, the start-up developing a Linux network operating system, this week rolled out Version 2.0 of its software, which supports Broadcom’s Trident II switching silicon.

Cumulus Linux 2.0 expands the breadth of networking hardware choices and platform densities – up to 32x40G, 96x10G + 8x40G, and 48x10G + 6x40G – to all systems that support Trident II. As a result, enterprise and service provider users can construct larger and faster fabrics that tie together virtual and physical network architectures and address growing traffic requirements, Cumulus says.
