Network Switches. This phrase conjures up thoughts of expensive boxes 
with operating systems out of reach to the user. While CLIs have 
improved, there are times where you really want a bash prompt to install 
a cron script or two, or run a packet capture through some python.

That day is here. We now have a few Linux based NOS distributions with a 
standard linux-server experience with many ports of line-rate ethernet 
interfaces. We will be exploring Cumulus Linux, a Debian-based NOS that 
has a growing list of hardware support.

This session will be an introduction to Cumulus and some puppet code on 
how to configure them. I'll have some hardware in tow and also discuss 
the virtual image.
