We are pleased to announce that Pica8 has joined our #Back2Open Program.

STORDIS initiated the #Back2Open Program to support Cumulus Linux users impacted by the fall out between Broadcom and Cumulus Linux, that followed the acquisition of Cumulus Linux by NVIDIA (more information can be found here).

#Back2Open is our mission to help everyone affected 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. Pica8 have recognised the importance of this mission and are the first partner to sign up for the #Back2Open Program.

#Back2Open future-proofs the users’ networks by migrating the users’ current, soon-to-be outdated, Cumulus Linux platform to a new, actively supported and maintained Open Networking operating system (NOS), like Pica8’s PicOS.

To kick-off this extended partnership we will hold a joint live webinar with Pica8 on August 17th 2021, titled “#Back2Open Migrates Cumulus Linux Users to Pica8”, where we will inform about:

  • Introduction to STORDIS’ #Back2Open Program for stranded Cumulus Linux users
  • Introduction to Pica8’s open networking software: AmpCon Controller and PicOS Software Switches
  • Advantages of switching from Cumulus Linux to Pica8
Additional information on the webinar and the possibility to register for the event can be found here.

Our customers want the flexibility to select the best software and hardware independently from one another. #Back2Open is our Mission to help everyone impacted by the Cumulus Linux situation, to easily switch back to a supported Open Networking NOS and bring them back onto the Open Networking path that they had initially chosen. Pica8 with all the latest new features and strong industry position is the right choice.

Łukasz Łukowski, STORDIS
Chief Sales & Marketing Officer

As an independent software vendor, Pica8 is committed to allowing customers their choice of hardware. Our partnership with STORDIS welcomes Cumulus Linux customers onto our AmpCon Controller and PicOS Software Switches to future proof their white box strategies.
