Improve your GCP infrastructure with VyOS
VyOS is a 100% open-source, community-driven network OS designed to reshape networking from a continuous loop of troubleshooting into a series of easily manageable, well-defined processes. We offer an advanced all-in-one Network OS, which is more than a simple router or firewall.
Combine Google technologies, open-source software, and Google-backed security with VyOS to ensure connectivity needed for your operations
Common use cases
Connect your Google Cloud infrastructure to remote sites using a plethora of tunneling and encryption protocols: GRE, VXLAN, IPSec, IPIP, SIT.
Provide secure access for road-warrior users to a VPN concentrator: PPTP, L2TP, OpenVPN, WireGuard
Limit access to sensitive data or valuable resources by means of a powerful firewall: stateful, zone-based, with source and destination NAT support
Manage your network and control the traffic flows from a centralized hub – the VyOS Command Line Interface.
The combination of Google Cloud console, our CLI, and simple configuration/automation management with DevOps tools of your choice lets you gain control of your network with VyOS.
The best part? You can deploy VyOS on GCP utilizing the prebuilt image from the marketplace. No additional requirements, and the entire setup takes as little as 8 steps.
- Open your project on the Google Cloud Console.
- Navigate to the SSH Keys tab from the Metadata page and add “vyos” with vyos as username and ssh-rsa key.
- Open the VyOS solution Google’s Marketplace and click on the LAUNCH ON COMPUTE ENGINE button.
- Adjust the options on the deployment page:
a. Enter the instance name;
b. Select the zone;
c. Select the machine type with respect to your traffic, features, and requirements;
d. Select the network to connect the interface;
e. Enable the IP forwarding.
- You’ll see the link to a newly created compute instance on the right side of the page after the deployment process is complete.
- Open the settings tab and add additional network tags if you need more ports on the instance.
- Open the “VM instances” page in Google Cloud Console, or click on the instance link directly to open the details and check it’s External IP.

VyOS was originally designed as a software router with hypervisors in mind. This choice allowed us to grow into a NOS that helps you to explore the full potential of Google Cloud.
Utilize the full power of Google’s 100+ edge locations while VyOS enables you to diversify connections by the support of its failover variants.
VyOS is essentially a centralized performance and management solution, which effectively eliminates the need to invest in and maintain multiple computing instances.
The only thing limiting your performance with VyOS is the lack of available computing resources. Need more juice? Move to a more powerful instance and process extra traffic without a hiccup.
Connect safely your cloud environment, office, and dedicated infrastructure to an array of VPN technologies, including DMVPN.
You can deploy and manage your GCP network infrastructure utilizing your tools of choice, including Hashicorp’s Terraform and Red Hat Ansible.
VyOS is a community-driven project. Our entire codebase is open for auditing, customized image builds, and contribution.
