My Cumulus CSE 'Doug Youd' kept talking about a workbench. What is the Cumulus Workbench? Not sure if I misheard him since he has an Western Australian accent and it was hard to hear over the phone. Is it some product I can buy? I just want try out Cumulus Linux and make sure its the right product for my company.

Hey Pete! Follow-up question. Is there some of 'cloud in a box' solution or something that I can buy so I can have an on-prem workbench? I really want real physical gear here, maybe like a 4-5 switch solution resembling all the examples I am seeing online?

There is! Call your account manager and ask about a Cumulus Networks Open Networking Starter Kit.
