Cumulus Networks ® Case Study Campaign Monitor + Cumulus ® Routing on the Host Campaign Monitor Builds Networks with Cumulus Networks Routing on the Host INDUSTRY: Email Marketing and SaaS BUSINESS OBJECTIVE: Network Simplicity and Reliability PARTNERS: QCT and Ansible The Cumulus Networks Routing on the Host solution is the next piece in the Open Networking puzzle. It has empowered Campaign Monitor to greatly improve the availability of critical services across our network. The biggest benefits are the addition of Quagga BGP unnumbered and the elimination of layer 2 technologies such as MLAG, FHRP and STP. — Tynan Young , Sr. Network Engineer, Campaign Monitor Overview Campaign Monitor has redefined how businesses connect with customers. With a simple yet elegant email marketing and automation platform, Campaign Monitor allows businesses to manage email campaigns to reach their target audience and analyze its impact. Challenges Campaign Monitor provides a unique and powerful platform for easily creating email campaigns and, equally important, allows customers to measure campaign impact in real time and react accordingly. To meet their uptime Service Level Agreements (SLAs), Campaign Monitor leverages its own data centers and is constantly working to increase data center reliability economically. The Campaign Monitor operations team leverages its in-house Linux knowledge and has developed Linux-oriented deployment and monitoring solutions across their entire stack. As part of their service model, Campaign Monitor used an anycast solution for their DNS service. Solution With a strong Linux background and in-house talent, Campaign Monitor evaluated ways to expand Linux across their data centers. With Clos layer 3 architecture, Campaign Monitor decided to deploy Open Networking with Cumulus Linux, a mature native Linux network operating system. Cumulus Linux enabled Campaign Monitor to configure and manage their network switches like servers, treating everything in the data center as just another Linux box. With Linux across the stack, Campaign Monitor decided to deploy Cumulus Quagga on the host to bring layer 3 benefits all the way down to the host. ©2016 Cumulus Networks. All rights reserved. |
