Cumulus VX is a free virtual environment for cloud and network administrators to test the latest technology from Cumulus Networks, removing all organizational and economic barriers to getting started with open networking in your own time, at your own pace, and within your own environment.
The environment can be used to learn about, and evaluate, Cumulus Linux, anytime and anywhere, producing sandbox environments for prototype assessment, pre-production rollouts, and script development.
Cumulus VX runs in a virtual machine (VM) on a standard x86 environment. The VM is a 64-bit operating system, built on the same foundation as Cumulus Linux, running Debian Linux Jessie 4.1, using
virtio drivers for network and HDD interfaces as well as the logical volume manager (LVM).
Five versions of the virtual disk image are available for use across various hypervisors:
Cumulus VX integrates with the following hypervisors:
