Overview

Cumulus Networks is leading the transformation of bringing web-scale networking to enterprise cloud. Our networking switching software, Cumulus Linux, is the only solution that allows you to affordably build and efficiently operate your network like the world’s largest data center operators — unlocking vertical network stacks.

With Cumulus Linux, our customers can run their data center networks the way Google and Facebook have done for years, highly automated, without all the development time or expensive, specialized hardware.

The network is a critical part of the data center that has traditionally been a bottleneck for rapid deployment of applications. We believe in completely transforming the industry by enabling a web-scale IT architectural approach that brings efficiency and flexibility to the network.

Software-defined WAN is a new approach to network connectivity that lowers operational costs and improves resource usage for multi-site deployments, allowing network administrators to use bandwidth more efficiently and ensure the highest possible level of performance for critical applications without sacrificing security or data privacy. For more information on deploying and configuring SD-WAN on the Meraki MX Security Appliance, see the Meraki SD-WAN Deployment Guide.
