Hyve Solutions, a division of SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX) and a leading provider of Open Compute Project (OCP) solutions, continues its mission to deliver the highest-quality open platform datacenter equipment by bringing key open networking solutions to market allowing for exceptional flexibility and customization in the datacenter. As an experienced, singular source for components and turn-key solutions supported by the Open Compute Project, coupled with its existing collaboration with the ecosystem of key OCP network project contributors, Hyve Solutions avoids the problems associated with the fragmented, cumbersome paths to procurement and complete integration of technologies such as SDN. The Open Compute Project networking approach gives customers a flexible, open, server-centric way to manage their networks versus one that is a notoriously rigid and closed environment. Hyve Solutions, one of the leading official OCP Solution Providers, works closely with the entire ecosystem of supported vendors to deliver turnkey open switching based on designs contributed to the Open Compute Foundation. Providing a natural extension to the OCP effort with the contribution of Open Network Install Environment (ONIE), Cumulus Networks is an integral part of the complete Hyve Solutions open portfolio, allowing users the freedom to select the operating system that best suits their needs. “The same concepts that have driven huge interest and value around Open Compute Project servers and storage are now making their way into networking as well. Cumulus Networks is a key enabler to fully supported, turnkey open switching and an integral part of the complete Hyve Solutions open portfolio,” said Steve Ichinaga, General Manager for Hyve Solutions. “Cumulus Networks provides a natural extension to the OCP effort with the contribution of ONIE which will allow users to easily install and uninstall the operating system they want. With its experience, scale and reach in large data center environments, Hyve Solutions was an obvious go to market solution partner. Working with Hyve Solutions and the entire ecosystem of supported hardware vendors allows us to provide customers with a flexible, open server-centric way to manage their networks," said Reza Malekzadeh, VP Business, Cumulus Networks.
