We are considering deploying cumulus Linux in our DC infrastructure. We are planning to purchase Modular switches from Dell or HP. I read somewhere that cumulus Linux only supports 1 RU switches. Is it true?

Hi Praveen,

Currently all of the supported switches are 1RU, but we are supporting more platforms all the time. There are criteria that the device has to meet, but the number of RU's is not a restriction. It must have ONIE at a minimum, linux must run on the box, and has to have a supported ASIC.
