Sarah Newman suggested I propose a talk for the Oct 7th meeting of
SVLUG, so here it is:

Cumulus Linux: Linux for Network Switches

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.

I'll talk about why we built it, how it works, and what advantages there
are to managing your switches like Linux servers.

Speaker Bio:
A Linux user (and occasional kernel contributor) since 1995, Nolan
co-founded Cumulus Networks to replace proprietary network appliances
with open Linux systems. Nolan loves systems software, hardware and
high-power rocketry.
