WHEN:
  Wednesday, October 7th, 2015 
  7pm-9pm

TOPIC:
  Cumulus Linux: Linux for Network Switches

PRESENTED BY:
  Nolan Leake

TOPIC SUMMARY:

  Wouldn't it be cool to have the entire software universe available for
  Linux servers available on your networking devices? Wouldn't it be
  cool to reuse your knowledge, scripts, automation tools from your
  servers on your switches? Cumulus Linux is a Debian-derived Linux
  distribution that runs on a wide variety of 1G, 10G, 40G, and soon
  100G switches.

  Nolan will talk about why the Cumulus Linux team built it, how it
  works, and what advantages there are to managing your switches like
  Linux servers.

  This meeting will be co-sponsored by the Silicon Valley Linux
  Technology Meetup
  (http://www.meetup.com/Silicon-Valley-Linux-Technology/).
