Latest Updates Allow Enterprises to Run and Operate Modern Networking Environments and Provide a Faster Way to Validate Root Cause of Network Issues
Cumulus Networks, the leaders in building open, modern, and scalable networks, released Cumulus Linux 4.0 and NetQ 2.4 – the most stable, reliable, and feature-rich software stack yet. Included in the cutting-edge enhancements are support for the most diverse switch silicon, the industry’s best EVPN implementation for L2/L3 connectivity, increased visibility and troubleshooting with a cloud-based deployment model of NetQ, the most comprehensive end-to-end network automation, and a single fabric across data center and campus networking environments.
As a result of nearly 10 years of focused development, Cumulus Linux 4.0 is the most reliable and performant version ever. With this fourth-generation release, Cumulus will continue to enable customers to meet modern network challenges with the best networking software designed to run and operate today’s data center and campus environments.
“We’ve worked closely with Cumulus Networks over the years to expand our integration and help customers tackle modern networking challenges, so Spectrum-2 and WJH with the new Cumulus Linux and NetQ releases is a natural extension of our partnership,” said Amit Katz, VP of Ethernet Switches at Mellanox. “As our joint customers take advantage of artificial intelligence, edge computing, and the IoT and other emerging technologies, we’ll continue to provide them with the most efficient tools to run and operate modern data center networks.”

“Nearly five years ago, we introduced the concept of open networking by working with Cumulus to be the first mainstream switch vendor that allowed third-party operating systems,” said Drew Schulke, vice president, Dell EMC Networking. “The new Cumulus enhancements boost the ecosystem that helps customers build the open, modern and scalable networks they need.”
Cumulus Networks provides networking software to design, run, and operate modern networking environments that are simple, open, agile, resilient, and scalable. Cumulus Linux is the only open networking software that allows you to affordably build and efficiently operate your network like the world’s largest data center and campus operators, unlocking vertical network stacks. Combined with Cumulus NetQ, a highly scalable, network operations tool set, organizations can accelerate the deployment of open networks and reduce the mean-time to resolution.
