Juniper Announces Virtual MX

In a previous post, I showed how to install the Cisco CSR-1000V virtual router in Virtual Box. Having these routers virtualized allows us to play with these setups and also use them as a learning testbed without having racks of switches, which for a person that just wants to play with tech, a really expensive hobby.  I saw an announcement today that makes things even better and more tech to play with.  Juniper announced that it is releasing a Virtual MX router. It won’t be out until the first quarter of 2015, but I can’t wait to try it out.

Something else that I hope to soon try out is Juniper’s Virtual SRX (Juniper Firefly Perimeter) which is a virtual version of their security platform.  I’ll be playing with that soon and hope to post about setting it up.  The NFV craze sure has made it a network tech enthusiasts dream come true.
