VyOS sagitta for research

What do you like best about VyOS?

VyOS is a virtual, open-source network tool that offers a wide range of routing capabilities. Universities can also benefit with free premium membership and support, making VyOS a must-use in networking projects.

What do you dislike about VyOS?

IT would be extremely helpful if more examples of implementing advanced network protocols were available online. For example, applying route policies and bgp. Some video tutorials would also be nice.

What problems is VyOS solving and how is that benefiting you?

No need to purchase an expensive router to deploy and control a fully functional network with advanced routing capabilities. The open-source router virtualisation is also ideal for low budget builds where space is also limited.

VyOS: Empowering Network Administrators with Reliable Open-Source Routing Solutions

What do you like best about VyOS?

VyOS stands out as a highly versatile routing platform, offering diverse routing protocols and features. This flexibility allows network administrators to construct complex and customized network infrastructures to suit their specific requirements. From static routing to dynamic protocols like OSPF and BGP, VyOS caters to a broad range of routing needs, ensuring dependable and efficient network connectivity.

Another remarkable aspect of VyOS is its commitment to open-source principles.

Furthermore, VyOS provides a robust and user-friendly command-line interface (CLI).

What do you dislike about VyOS?

A more user-friendly web-based management interface or graphical user interface (GUI) could benefit administrators who prefer a visual approach to network management. Although VyOS primarily focuses on CLI-based management, offering a GUI option would provide an alternative for those who prefer a graphical interface for configuration and monitoring.

What problems is VyOS solving and how is that benefiting you?

VyOS addresses challenges related to routing versatility, cost-effectiveness, streamlined management, community collaboration, and network configuration options.
