Overall Opinion: VyOS is an excellent solution for network admins that really know what they’re doing. The command line interface centralizes control but can be clunky to work with for a newer generation of IT specialists. VyOS is a coder enthusiast’s paradise, but won’t be suitable for all IT staffs. As open source software it’s free to use and change, but for businesses that want to employ it as a solution you’ll need an extremely well trained network admin to get the most out of it. While VyOS offers a stable distribution and continually finds and updates bugs in the code, if you want Sentrium to work for you as an extension of your IT department, that will have to be paid for separately. They do staff one of the original coders for VyOS. It’s an excellent program if you have the programming chops to make it work for you. For users that are looking for a good open source firewall, pfSense may provide a better solution. VyOS is fundamentally a router software with a powerful built-in firewall. Other options for firewalls are going to be easier to configure and get the hang of. Still, from a pure coding standpoint, VyOS offers an extremely alluring and powerful solution.
Pros: Highly configurable and able to meet the needs of any network Free to use and open source Currently well supported Scales to larger networks well
Cons: Not user friendly
VyOS is so simple to setup as a lab router it can be done in a few min. Import the virtual machine into your hypervisor and within 5 min you have a working router. Now VyOS can do much much...
