Cumulus is aquired by Nvidia. They closed the deal.

Wednesday, June 24, 2020 12:31:32 PM Asia/Taipei

Besides standard talks about exciting prospects, key products, acceleration, disaggregation, new growth, and other blah-blah-blah, there are two changes we'd like to mention.

The first one - a change in the business model. All transactions are moving to an authorized Cumulus/Mellanox distributor. There will be a week or two of chaos before the new structure starts working.

The second one - since the last week, perpetual licenses are unbundled from software updates and support. Now it's possible to get a license and rely only on public resources and community talks. It could be a reasonable choice if you have a lot of experience with Cumulus Linux and other products.

Cumulus NetQ 3.0.0 released

Thursday, April 30, 2020 11:25:12 AM Asia/Taipei

Cumulus Networks has launched NetQ 3.0, with significant functionality improvements that streamline network operations and remove barriers to the adoption of open networking. Lifecycle Management (LCM) capabilities are in that upgrade, enabling NetQ to deliver upgrade and configuration management with push button-simplicity.

NetQ 3.0 Highlights:

With the addition of full lifecycle management functionality, NetQ 3.0 now combines the ability to easily upgrade, configure and deploy network elements with a full suite of operations capabilities, such as visibility, troubleshooting, validation, trace and comparative look-back functionality. The addition of LCM complements customer deployments of Cumulus Linux and helps to further reduce operations costs, increase flexibility, reduce security risks and maximize the value of network infrastructure. Included in the updated software are lifecycle management (LCM) capabilities that enable NetQ to deliver upgrade and configuration management with push button simplicity helping remove complexity and open the door to adoption of open networking.

Upgrade Management: NetQ now offers simplified software upgrade functionality for Cumulus Linux at the push of a button and provides a critical function for Cumulus Linux customers. What previously would require automation scripting and significant development effort to perform a software upgrade, can now be done simply with the push of a button through NetQ’s simple to use GUI interface. NetQ removes all of the complexity, workstreams, hassle and risks associated with the upgrade process, allowing our customers to focus on more strategic efforts. NetQ LCM is a must-have capability for all Cumulus Networks customers and adoption of open networking has never been easier!

Configuration Management: NetQ will soon (mid-year timeframe) support Cumulus Linux installations and configurations, making Cumulus Linux easier to deploy and manage, allowing customers to easily install a new switch and push a golden configuration from a centralized location. In addition, NetQ provides customers with the ability to enforce standards and best practices, deploy configlet that helps to automate repetitive configuration tasks and easily identify configuration differences when configurations on the box do not match the default configuration.

The inclusion of network lifecycle management practices helps data centers lower operational costs, increase flexibility, reduce security risks and maximize the value of networking infrastructure.

White Box Switches: Part Three, OpenSwitch

Wednesday, November 7, 2018 1:57:47 PM Asia/Taipei

OPS And OPX, or a Bit of History

At first, OpenSwitch project and openswitch.net were governed by HP as they tried to ride the "open networking" wave. An open community, a lot of talk-based supports from several vendors, all as usual.

Efforts were made to create a set of protocols and an SAI connector to make adoption of new silicon easier.

After about 8 months, the project was handed to the Linux Foundation. A proper excuse was made - HPE said the move was a way to show the community that this wouldn’t be an effort controlled by one vendor.

White Box Switches: Part Two, ICOS

Saturday, October 27, 2018 12:16:47 PM Asia/Taipei

A common description

It’s easy to find pieces like these:

  • Web-scale NOS with traditional L2/L3 functions and management, with an API structure for third-party apps and integration with provisioning and orchestration systems.

  • Broadcom ICOS/FASTPATH is an off-the-shelf (Linux based) network operating system (NOS), providing traditional L2 and L3 functions and management, with an API-structure for value-added applications and integration with provisioning and orchestration systems.

  • ICOS is a robust, programmable full featured and most widely deployed networking operating system for enterprise and data center networking. Its built-in arbitration between conventional and SDN flows allowing customers seamless integration to Next-Gen Open programmable networks.

  • FASTPATH production-ready networking software helps manufacturers achieve record-setting time-to-market performance for introducing new Ethernet products. In part, this advantage comes from the extensive feature set and integration capabilities that give Broadcom’s software unprecedented application flexibility.

A general praise to its wholesome, next-gen design, apps and APIs. Typical marketing stuff that gives no real understanding of the product.
