About this guide

This guide describes how to install and upgrade Vyatta NOS on VMware systems.

Note: In this guide the term router is used when referring to a vRouter, router, or virtual router.
Like other virtualization platforms, VMware provides the ability to run multiple virtual systems on a single hardware platform. VMware ESX and VMware ESXi are virtualization platforms that run directly on system hardware in a 64-bit environment.
  • We provide a pre-built VMware template that you can use to create vRouter virtual machines on either of these platforms.
  • We provide an ISO image that you can install on either of these platforms.
  • You can also run vRouter in an OpenStack cloud with VMware vSphere as the hypervisor.
