We are pleased to announce that we have signed a distribution agreement with BISDN.

This step allows us to extend our Network Operating System (NOS) portfolio with the free and open source BISDN Linux. The NOS itself is developed in Berlin by BISDN, a company focussing on whitebox switching and open networking solutions.

The latest BISDN Linux release 4.0 is based on the open embedded Yocto Dunfell Linux distribution and runs a mainline 5.10 kernel. Utilizing the Linux network stack, it can be configured with all the standard and well-known Linux tools. Therefore, it integrates seamlessly in any existing datacentre environment and plays well with all the network automation routines usually utilised just for servers.

STORDIS now offers #Open2Support SLA Program – an advanced HW (hardware) exchange for complete peace of mind to support your business whatever your requirement is.

STORDIS also offers an environmentally friendly approach by installing BISDN’s Linux Distribution software to disaggregated Networking Bare Metal Switches already in place, reducing your capital outlay by re-using existing hardware and also reducing your waste.

About BISDN

BISDN was founded in 2012 in Berlin, Germany, and set out to develop the software needed in the rapidly changing world of software defined networking. Based on long-standing experience in the area of telecommunication as well as datacenter networking, BISDN focusses on high-performance whitebox switching and open network software solutions.

Having followed the development of BISDN for many years, I am proud that we have become the first Value Added Distributor of the first fully open-source Switch Operating System. If you like Linux and you want your network switch to be provisioned, configured and monitored the same way as a Linux Server then you will love this operating system. When paired with the option for an enterprise-grade support service, all the requirements to use this platform in a modern datacentre environment will have been fulfilled.

Waldemar Scheck, STORDIS
CEO

We were not the first to have the idea of using the Linux networking for whitebox switches, as this dates back to the early days of SDN. I believe, however, that we are the first to fully open source the controller and the OS underneath. This is the next logical step towards open networking.

Dr. Hagen Woesner, BISDN
CEO

We are glad to see BISDN contribute its Linux-based platform to the open-source community. Open Network Operating Systems are gaining in popularity and provide customers with flexibility and choice and will further accelerate the open network movement.

On August 17th, 2021 we held a very informative webinar together with our great partners Pica8 on our #Back2Open Program – our rescue program for stranded Cumulus Linux users. (Click here, if you want to learn, why certain Cumulus Linux Users will become stranded).

The live webinar was quite a success – admittedly with some small technical issues in the beginning. Despite that we had a great turnout and some very interested attendees with many great questions on Pica8 and the #Back2Open Program in general.

We once again would like to thank everyone that registered and attended for the great time and experience.

However if you were not able to attend the live webinar or have missed registering for it – do not worry: We have recorded the full webinar and uploaded it to our YouTube channel. You can check out the recorded webinar on YouTube or watch it directly below:
