Quanta LB8 with Almach

I have acquired a strange piece of history: A Quanta LB8 switch loaded with an early version of the Cumulus NOS customized and deployed at Amazon. The LB8 is a 48 port 10gbe switch based on the Broadcom Trident BCM56840 platform. This is the login screen I am greeted with when I shell into it.
