Features and use cases
VyOS is an open-source network operating system based on Debian GNU/Linux that provides software-based network routing, firewall, and VPN functionality. In version 1.2., VyOS switched its routing engine to FRRouting, which makes it an ideal and cost-effective solution for large enterprises, SMBs, network service providers, system integrators, private cloud providers, advanced users and home labs.
VyOS supports the Kernel-Based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor on Linux by providing a prebuilt Linux KVM image with a number of Linux KVM-specific modifications and optimizations.
As a virtual router, VyOS allows you to have a separate network for all of your KVM virtual machines and route its traffic through your normal private network to the internet. With a virtual router, you are able to configure an unlimited number of routed sub-networks for your KVM virtual environment with as little as two virtual network adapters and extensive use of VLANs.
VyOS includes drivers and other modules required for the best performance and dynamic hardware reconfiguration in KVM environments. In addition, VyOS doesn’t need per-instance and per-core licensing, meaning you can scale your installations without worrying about additional charges.
Being focused on routing, VyOS offers its users access to enterprise-grade functionality such as powerful traffic filtration, flows analysis, HA topologies, IPsec, OpenVPN and NAT.
