VyOS on Packet

Founded in 2014 and acquired by Equinix in 2020, Packet is focused on providing a developer-friendly experience for infrastructure that is secure, scalable and trusted.

Its bare-metal public and edge cloud solutions enable SaaS companies and Fortune 100s alike to securely manage physical infrastructure on a global scale, no matter the workload, architecture, or location. Bare Metal as a Service (BMaaS) allows companies to rapidly deploy physical infrastructure at the edge. With a combined Equinix and Packet solution, enterprises and service providers can gain the agility and flexibility they need to build and deploy low-latency services at the edge.

Capable of running on both physical and virtual hardware, VyOS is practically designed to enhance a Packet-driven experience.

VyOS on Packet

Your side of technology

Connecting each and every bare metal server to the VyOS router delivers stability and scalability with none of the “noisy neighbor” problems. Such a convergence is not constrained by topology, but enabled by it – new products and services can be designed on and scaled out of the network on tried-and-true IP routing protocols.

QoS and policy-based routing allow you to ensure optimal performance right where it is needed. Reliable support of standard network services such as DHCP server and relay, DNS forwarding and web proxy.

  • Connect your edge or cloud infrastructure to your data center or office network.
  • Benefit from the support of multiple protocols without per-tunnel licensing.
  • Handle your cloud data traffic flow efficiently with VyOS’s advanced routing features.
