Watch the replay

Last year, Brocade completed end-of-sale and end-of-support for its Vyatta vRouters. Companies such as ÚVT Internet announced a seamless transition to 6WIND Virtual Border Router for continuous service and support. Click Here to read the press release.

Since 6WIND’s replacement program announcement in August 2017, customers are experiencing a smooth transition for vRouter use cases including over 5X performance increase for IPsec VPNs, while using only 1/3 of existing server resources.

6WIND Virtual Border Router is a high performance software router for bare metal and virtual machine deployments on commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) servers. It includes routing and firewall features with additional 6WIND Virtual Security Gateway features to create IPsec VPNs.

Based on DPDK (Data Plane Development Kit) for performance, 6WIND’s vRouter separates its full featured data plane and control plane for use case flexibility. Management options include CLI, XML or Linux-based tools.

The 6WIND vRouter Replacement Program Advantage:

  • Performance: 12 Mpps per core of IP Forwarding and 12 Gbps per core of IPsec, standard 1/10/40/100GE NIC support and scaling up to 1 million routes and 100,000 tunnels on Intel servers.
  • Migration from Brocade, VyOS or Hardware Routers: Linux-based management tools with support are available for cross-platform migration, whether from existing software or hardware routers.
  • Support: Available today with options for subscription and perpetual licenses. Licenses are priced per performance from 1G to 100G.

In Addition:

Congratulations to Jonathon Hudspeth of IBM on winning the 6WIND RC Car.
