    Cumulus Linux and Broadcom Are Parting Ways

    What Does This Mean For You?

    You have probably heard the news by now that Cumulus Linux and Broadcom are parting ways.

    Since NVIDIA acquired Cumulus Networks, Broadcom have confirmed that they will no longer support Cumulus Linux and already have revoked access to their switch ASIC documentation.

    This development has a major impact on anyone that is using a combination of Cumulus Linux with a network switch that is powered by a Broadcom ASIC and will require some form of action to avoid a negative impact.

    • No NOS Updates

      Cumulus Linux 4.2 is the last version to support Broadcom ASICs

    • No New Features

      NVIDIA will not port any new features to Broadcom silicon, even on currently supported hardware

    • No Bug Fixes

      Security fixes will become more challenging and could leave your system vulnerable

    • No Support for New Platforms

      No support for new switch platforms based on Broadcom ASICs

    Was your decision to deploy Cumulus Linux on your switches wrong? Definitely Not!

    It was a decision to deploy Open Networking due to its flexibility and all of the benefits that come with the Open Networking approach – and we are sure that these benefits are still what you are after.

    Thanks to the disaggregated nature of Open Networking, our #Back2Open Program comes in to help you replace Cumulus and switch back to a supported and maintained Open Networking NOS.

    Let's Get #Back2Open

    What is the #Back2Open Program?

    We initiated the #Back2Open Program because we deeply care about our customers and Open Networking users in general and do not want to let them down.

    #Back2Open is our Mission to help everyone impacted by this Cumulus Linux situation, to easily switch back to a supported Open Networking NOS and bring them back on their Open Networking path, that they had initially chosen.

    #Back2Open future-proofs your network by migrating your current, soon-to-be outdated, Cumulus Linux platform to a new, actively supported and maintained Open Networking operating system (NOS).
