STORDIS, Edgecore, and Credo Strengthen Collaboration with Advanced Dual TOR Cables, Low Power CLOS AECs, and Cutting-Edge Networking Solutions

Stuttgart, Germany – April 18th, 2023 – STORDIS – The Open Networking Expert – today announced the deepening of its collaboration with Edgecore Networks and CREDO to deliver advanced Dual TOR cables, Low Power CLOS Active Electrical Cables (LP CLOS AECs), and cutting-edge networking
solutions for data centers. Building on years of successful partnership with Edgecore and a strong first year with CREDO, STORDIS is aggregating disaggregation by bringing together industry-leading open networking solutions.

Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of open and disaggregated network solutions, offers DCS520, the high-density spine switch for high-performance data centers. The DCS520 is equipped with Broadcom’s Tomahawk 4 chipset, which boasts a remarkable 25.6 Tbps switching capacity and low latency performance. Together with Enterprise SONiC distribution by Edgecore, the DCS520 provides flexible and high-efficiency data processing, enabling users to handle and manage large amounts of data with ease. This makes it an ideal solution for service providers, cloud operators, and data center interconnect use cases in metro environments.

CREDO’s innovative Dual TOR cables are compatible with SONiC and strengthen Credo’s robust 400G and 800G portfolios. These cables provide seamless implementation, eliminating the need for rack redundancy and reducing power and cost. Additionally, Credo’s HiWire™ LP CLOS AEC is a thin, low power 800G AEC designed for in-rack applications, replacing backplanes in Distributed, Disaggregated Chassis (DDC) implementations. Plug & play LP CLOS AECs consume up to 75% less rack volume than traditional copper cables, enabling interconnect densities of up to 1,000 cables per rack.

By combining the expertise of STORDIS, Edgecore, and CREDO, these companies strive to enable customers to optimize their data center infrastructure for the future.

“As we continue to collaborate closely with Edgecore and CREDO, we are revolutionizing the data center
industry with our cutting-edge solutions. Together, we provide customers with high quality, costeffective, and reliable solutions for their data center needs.” –

Łukasz Łukowski, CSMO, STORDIS

“Our long-standing partnership with STORDIS and our collaboration with CREDO have enabled us to push
the boundaries of open networking solutions. We are proud to be a part of this innovative collaboration,
delivering excellent data center technology to our customers” – 

Nanda Ravindran, Vice President of Product Management, Edgecore Networks

“Credo is excited to work closely with STORDIS and Edgecore, leveraging our strong 400G and 800G
portfolios, innovative Dual TOR cables, and our power LP CLOS AECs, to deliver advanced data center
solutions. This collaboration is a testament to our commitment to providing high-performance, lowlatency, and energy-efficient solutions to the industry.

STORDIS – 15 Year Business Anniversary

Today, the STORDIS Group has another reason to celebrate: STORDIS GmbH has reached its 15th anniversary!

It was 2007 when STORDIS was founded as a Value-Added Distributor for storage products. Only 7 years later, in 2014, a Team of IT enthusiasts started the successful journey into Open Disaggregated Networking. STORDIS officially became key partners with Edgecore Networks Corporation, Pica8, Inc. and Cumulus Networks.

The next step was taken in 2017 when we started to promote Open Networking in the UK; but that story you already know about because we recently celebrated the 5th anniversary of STORDIS Ltd.

Since then, a lot has happened: we are fully engaged in the Open Networking market and are a key Partner of the Open Networking Community, promoting the evolution of Disaggregated Networking and actively engaging in projects such es SONiC, DENT and MONSOON. STORDIS encourages and supports continuous learning by offering the in-depth Unboxing Open Networking and SONiC pieces of training through the route2open Academy.

We formed the STORDIS Group by bringing together the experience, talent and know-how from all three parts of our business: STORDIS GmbH, STORDIS Ltd and Route2Open. In the last 3 years we have grown organically into a very diverse and integrated team operating in 3 countries with one vision: to become the world’s leading open networking solutions provider, partnering with customers to drive R&D and contributing to open source communities.

It is amazing to see how much we have created together and how much we have given to each other. Projects, services, courses, products, and most of all relationships. Relationships between our colleagues, our suppliers and our customers. We believe that we are The Open Networking Expert delivering customer-centric solutions.

For our partners, we are constantly evolving, and it shows! We live our Values: to be a trusted team, passionate to deliver innovation. And we believe in improvement: To be better together!

Maybe the recipe for our success is our close-knit team, our approach to every-day working: together and with passion.

So, here we are: Happy 15th Anniversary, STORDIS!

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
