MONSOON – Open-Source Network Monitoring Exporter for SONiC!

STORDIS is excited to announce the release of Monsoon – A data visualization and monitoring solution for SONiC. 

Monsoon is an easy-to-use and affordable network monitoring exporter, that monitors network devices such as routers and switches that are running the SONiC Network Operating System.

Via continuous monitoring of the network, Monsoon gives you in-depth visibility and control.

This will allow you to: 

  • easily find root causes of a fault and allow you to take action before your operations are affected. 
  • test the network to see how it performs to understand the network’s bandwidth and better allocate resources. 
  • identify sudden spikes in traffic levels to reduce downtime. 
  • monitor IP assets and ensure smooth performance. 

Monsoon fully supports Prometheus and Grafana, allowing you to create custom dashboards so you can monitor the various parameters that are crucial to your network. We even have a default dashboard available to use straight away! 

Monsoon is available from our GitHub site here: https://github.com/STORDIS/monsoon/, with full instructions on how to download and install the software.

STORDIS brings Enterprise to the SONiC Network Operating System

Stuttgart, Germany – September 12th, 2022  – STORDIS – The Open Networking Expert – brings Enterprise to the SONiC NOS, providing a ruggedised and enhanced version of the open source software, along with Open2Support, their Professional Support Service. These new services compliment the already extensive range of offerings that STORDIS provides, including training, testing, consultancy and laboratory environments.

Enterprise SONiC distribution is a commercially supported offering based on open source SONiC with feature enrichment and hardening – targeted for campus, enterprise and cloud-level large-scale data center network environments. 

It supports ODM and OEM platforms based on the StrataXGS® family of silicon from Broadcom including 400G Trident4 and coming soon Tomahawk 4 and 5.

SONiC (Software for Open Networking in the Cloud) is an open source software with a strong community revolutionizing and opening network to large scale data center, cloud and campus operators. The unique design enables system integrators and operators to flexibly enhance their network by adding their own software tools to improve and simplify their overall network fabric and performance. With a rich and growing ecosystem of hardware and software vendors, SONiC offers full independence to anyone who is open to becoming more open. Paired with commercial support services form STORDIS, it´s the best fit for any productive 24×7 environments.

Being in the Open Networking field since day one, I´m more than pleased to see the development going more and more towards a proven model with Enterprise services, which we well know from Linux. SONiC is closing the gap between open source and a hardened and commercially proven Network Switch Operating System solution and it enables us to build trusted, long-term relationships with our customers and keep on delivering new innovation by adding software additions. One  example of this is Deutsche Telekom Technik GmbH, who chose Enterprise SONiC for their first iteration of a network fabric for bare-metal Kubernetes based on switches from Edgecore Networks with StrataXGS switching ASIC to shorten time-to-production, get needed robustness, enterprise features and support in a very efficient way” – 

Waldemar Scheck, CEO, STORDIS

“We are pleased to work with STORDIS to extend the SONiC initiative, by enabling it on Broadcom’s StrataXGS switching silicon. SONiC distribution, STORDIS’s 24 x 7 service, and white box switches built on Broadcom’s routing and switching silicon are a powerful combination for data center and campus applications.”

Hasan Siraj,  Head of Software Products/Ecosystem, Broadcom

“As a technical university, we are committed to solutions that we can adjust ourselves. For the rebuilding of our data center and campus infrastructure we enthusiastically embraced the option of moving to open networking with Edgecore and SONiC, especially as SONiC is a NOS which is based on the same operating system that we use with our current servers. STORDIS has been a reliable (and knowledgeable) partner during the rebuilding of our network. Much more than just a hardware retailer, we appreciate the support they have given and their strength to stand behind the products they offer.” 

Dr. Michael Hummel, Head of IT Management University of Applied Sciences, Technical Centre Vienna

Stuttgart’s Summer Party – Days of Fun!

Stuttgart’s days of fun!

We are not a typical team...

We are spread all over the world, so a chance to meet face to face we decided to squeeze to the maximum, like a lemon!

After the colleagues’ journey from Poland and the UK to the Stuttgart office, we had a moment of rest and met with Waldemar Scheck, our Chief Executive Officer.

Here, we focused on innovation and one-on-one meetings to build long-term relationships with the employees who work in Poland and the UK.
And later... it only got better!

After kicking it off with an informative company presentation on STORDIS’ past and future and what great goals we achieved this year already, a joint cooking session was on the schedule.

We split up into smaller teams and worked on creating a 3-course meal for us to enjoy later that evening:

We disappeared behind the kitchen pots and cooked together for more than an hour, frying up more than just one common German/Swabian dish!

The next day we toured around Stuttgart together on an interesting “Schnitzeljagd” (scavenger hunt), organized for the team by our own apprentices.

During this scanenger hunt we saw quite a few of Stuttgart's highlights:

  • The world's very first television tower: 60 years old…, 217 meters high…
  • Impressive Johanneskirche protestant church at Feuersee ("Fire Lake")
  • Stuttgarter Rathaus: Stuttgart’s City Hall
  • The historic market hall - best foodie spot
  • Stuttgart’s Schlossplatz, the city’s “Palace Square”: a meeting point for young and old

These were days full of shared conversations, plans for the future of our company, full of laughter and delicious food.

Thank you team!
