We’ve had some great conversations with Cumulus, but more generally, I think you need to look at the cloud project’s goals. Those should help inform your decision making process. Specifically, what are your SDN and generally, networking needs and use cases.

In a new cloud deployment of any size, you probably want more than 10G to the compute servers, especially if you’re carrying storage traffic.
