We are pleased to announce that IP Infusion, a leading provider of network disaggregation solutions for telecom and data communications operators, has joined STORDIS’ #Back2Open Program. The #Back2Open Program supports Cumulus Linux users who are looking to switch back to another Open Networking Operating System (NOS), like IP Infusion’s OcNOS.

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. Current Cumulus Linux users may find themselves without a clear path forward. #Back2Open was created by STORDIS to help these users migrate from their existing end-of-life platforms to a feature-rich and actively supported Open Networking Operating System (more information can be found here).

To kick-off this extended partnership we will hold a joint live webinar with IP Infusion on , where we will inform about:

  • Introduction to STORDIS’ #Back2Open Program for Cumulus Linux users
  • Introduction to IP Infusion’s use cases and their proven operating system OcNOS for Open Networking
  • Advantages of switching from Cumulus Linux to IP Infusion OcNOS
Additional information on the webinar and the possibility to register for the event can be found here.
We are really excited to see that a Partner as strong as IP Infusion has decided to join our #Back2Open Program to help our customers migrate back to Open Networking. With all of IP Infusion’s supported features and hardware compatibility with a wide range of open networking switches and routing platforms, Cumulus Users will be able to take their networks to the next level.

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:

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.

We are happy to be able to introduce to you our #Back2Open Program for stranded Cumulus Linux users! Make the switch back to an actively supported and maintained Open Network Operating System (NOS) now – with a free NOS software license*.

Some background information: You have probably heard the news by now that Cumulus Linux and Broadcom are parting ways, after NVIDIA acquired Cumulus Linux.

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 that negative impact.

Our #Back2Open Program was initiated for exactly that reason: We will help you switch from Cumulus Linux back to an actively maintained and supported Open Networking OS (NOS) – with a free NOS license*.
*Only the software support would need to be acquired.
