Overheard on Twitter: SDN agility; Cumulus Linux commentary

Michelle McNickle

Each week, SearchSDN takes to Twitter to see what users -- including experts, analysts and editors -- are saying about software-defined networking. By using Storify and searching hashtags, keywords and tweetups, we scour the social media site to see what users have to say about SDN, OpenFlow, network virtualization and more. This week, we looked to Twitter and got an earful from Tweeters about SDN agility, network virtualization, and the news from Cumulus Networks and its Linux network.

Recently, news broke that startup company Cumulus Networks released a Linux-based network operating system. The system, called Cumulus Linux, is a version of the open source operating system that's built to run bare-metal switch hardware -- this includes the open-specification switches that the Facebook Open Compute project is planning to include. Twitter users had a lot to say about the new operating system, as well as the future of the project and Cumulus Networks.
