Today’s Heavy Networking is all about VyOS, an open-source OS for routing that’s based on Debian GNU/Linux.
VyOS “provides a free routing platform that competes directly with other commercially available solutions from well-known vendors. Because VyOS is run on standard amd64, i586 and ARM systems, it is able to be used as a router and firewall platform for cloud deployments.”
Here to catch us up on VyOS is Yuriy Andamasov, the project coordinator.
