Welcome to the Silicon Valley Linux Users Group

Linux - The Operating System of the 21st Century TM

SVLUG meetings are first Wednesdays of each month at 7PM-9PM!

Next Meeting

Date Location Speaker
Oct. 7th, 2015 Symantec, Mountain View Nolan Leake,
CTO, Cumulus Networks, Inc.
Topic: 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.

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