Networking Partner Program

Cumulus Networks is now officially a part of NVIDIA’s networking business unit formed last year with the Mellanox acquisition. Combining the strength of Mellanox and Cumulus creates a larger opportunity for our partners to succeed by giving users a choice of ingredients to power data centers that are accelerated, disaggregated, and software-defined to meet the exponential growth in AI, cloud, and high-performance computing.

A Note to Existing Channel Partners

As part of the Cumulus Networks acquisition by NVIDIA, we've deactivated our channel partner portal and migrated to a new partner portal under Mellanox.
