Improve your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure with VyOS
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is a set of complementary cloud services that enable you to build and run a wide range of applications and services in a highly available hosted environment. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers high-performance computation capabilities (as physical hardware instances) and storage capacity in a flexible overlay virtual network that is securely accessible from your on-premises network.
A virtual cloud network (VCN) is a customizable and private network in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Just like a traditional data center network, the VCN provides you with complete control over your network environment. This includes assigning your own private IP address space, creating subnets and route tables, and configuring stateful firewalls. A single tenant can have multiple VCNs, providing grouping and isolation of related resources. Oracle’s new 25 Gb network infrastructure offers significantly more bandwidth than most competitors and allows businesses to take full advantage of computing, storage and database services in a cost-effective way.
Common Use Cases
Best Connection and Support
Interconnection between Oracle Cloud and on-premise networks. Fully configurable IP addresses, subnets, routing and firewalls help support new or existing private networks.
Reliability and Availability
Using VyOS as a firewall for filtering traffic between virtual cloud networks and external resources. Support for high-availability topologies, network address translation with synchronization of connection states.
Confidentiality and Security
Using VyOS as a firewall for filtering traffic between virtual cloud networks and external resources. Multiple security layers, encryption, and private connectivity to other networks and critical Oracle services.
VyOS is a software router with powerful functionality and wide support of platforms for deploying. It is not limited to hardware solutions and can be easily used on cloud infrastructures, including Oracle Cloud. VyOS can handle static or dynamic routing, firewalls, multiple site interconnection, and many other tasks. The system is highly flexible and backed by the latest open-source solutions.
Oracle Cloud is known as a high-performance environment, featuring high bandwidth, microsecond latency networks and can be used for big data applications with networked storage. VyOS is a flexible system with powerful routing, VPN and firewall functionalities. Uniting them into a single solution gives you a wide range of options to improve your infrastructure.
The combination of a cost-effective cloud solution with an open-source software router makes VyOS the perfect choice for businesses looking for efficiency, scalability and the highest standard of support.
Easy to Deploy
VyOS provides ready to import images for Oracle Cloud. You have complete flexibility in a deployment configuration with them. Optionally, platform-agnostic ISO images can be used for interactive installation. VyOS can be quickly deployed in any compatible type of Compute Shapes in Oracle Cloud, depending on performance requirements.
What Our Customers Say
As an ISP, one of our most important use cases is to be able to run full BGP tables without any issues. We have been using VyOS for this for years now and it has worked absolutely flawlessly. I don’t think we’ve ever had an issue with this, in fact.
We also use VyOS to host a couple of hundred server-networks and VyOS handles this with ease, even with some of our networks having crazy amounts of access-rules on them and often having consistently high throughput and burst rates.
Whenever we do experience issues or we simply have theoretical questions, it never feels like the support team is far away. We usually receive very quick and concise answers to our inquiries. It’s a very nice feeling to know that everyone that’s working on the VyOS project seem to be experts at it, it does a lot for our confidence in running VyOS as much as we do.
I reached out to the Vyos team with an issue regarding my subscription and it was promptly resolved.
I have been using vyos for the past 6 maybe 7 years, came from pfsense and never looked back.
The most important features for me:
- Ease of use
- I can configure everything from the command line and have made small modifications as time has gone by. I keep a script with the full command set applicable to my firewall.
- Setting up fq-codel is extremely intuitive and works flawlessly. I never had this kind of QoS with other solutions.
- I do miss a web interface to display stats and such, but I can live without it for the time being.
I have nothing but good things to say about the VyOS Support Engineers. I think Dmitriy has owned our last 2 ticket, and the rest of the Support Team have all helped out. Taras, Yuriy, Jose, (and I hope I didn’t miss anyone) are quick to contribute and answer any questions I have. I believe it was Taras that even updated the VyOS/VMware doc to clarify a few things that I needed help understanding.
My boss just recently purchased a VyOS Subscription, or license, because we were experiencing a couple bizarre issues during our VyOS refresh of 30+ routers. We were struggling due to a single “show-stopper” issue, month after month, and not able to proceed with the rest of the refresh project. My boss, Daya Rajaratnam, decided we needed to get Commercial Support and open proper tickets and also to show our support of the VyOS Team.
Just hours after our Support PO went thru, I opened a ticket. I gave it a relatively low priority so I would know what to expect with future tickets. Its was great to see a response from an Engineer in just a couple hours. Fast forward a few days and the root cause was identified, I had a simple workaround in place and working in production(and had learned a lot from other Support Engineers that had contributed). What a HUGE load off my back to have that issue resolved with a reliable fix. 5 Stars for service, knowledge, and going above and beyond. (Hell, can I give them 10 stars?).
4 days later I opened a second ticket about an unrelated VTI issue that had also been plaguing us for many months. The experience was equally impressive and I again had a simple and reliable workaround.
Working with this group was a real pleasure.
I use Vyos from the beginning and his predecessor Vyatta. I like platform because has own style of architecture and similar cli like cisco and juniper.
I use platform to make migration from site to site or hybrid migration with Cloud.
I’d like that platform has all ipv6 attribute and use it very much.
VyOS is the backbone of our company network since the early Vyatta 6.x days. It scales to meet your needs – from 256MB Alix-Board Low-Power Box for small branch offices to multi-processor rackmounted/virtualized network appliance – and is extremely easy to integrate with other systems like monitoring and configuration management. The excellent support from Sentrium turns it into a truely complete product that meets all our requirements.
I’m happy to recommend VyOS/Sentrium. We first began using VyOS several years ago; we maintain a VPN from cellular vendor network to our infrastructure. Since moving our infrastructure permanently to AWS, we decided to sign up for Sentrium’s professional product and service.
I recently ran into a peculiar issue with the IPSEC VPN after a version upgrade – Sentrium staff worked with me to resolve it, and were very prompt in providing information and resolution. We are running two instances, a primary and a backup, and both are working splendidly, with seamless failover.
Thank you for the prompt support. It is great to know that not only the product is a perfect fit for our needs, but also knowing that there is a professional support team we can rely on.
We use VYOS to connect distributed POPs to our data centers and provide secure Internet connectivity to the POPs.
I think you have a great product. Actually I like promoting your product to other customers and using it for demo purposes.
You are one of a kind today to support almost all network protocols.
You guys are great on support. Thank You.
We are very excited about VyOS and use it as part of our products. VyOS convinces as a complete product with REST API and Wireguard support. The support is very fast and extremely competent.
