Anyway because we're a small organization I'm the sole tech support. I like Meraki for the dashboard and one touch provisioning.
Anyway the put is I would love to be using an VMX and Advanced Services License for our hosted security.
Now I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that you can use the Advanced Security License you already have to run on the VMX 100 or would you have to purchase a regular MX100 AS license and use it with the VMX?
Also since we provide our own cloud services can the VMX function outside of AWS? Like say in a VMware Environment?
The MX100 and VMX100 [Enterprise] licences are the same price - but not the same licence. You can't buy a licence for one and use it with the other. Also the VMX only has an enterprise licence. You can use it with networks that have advanced security licences.
I believe the vMX100 licence code (for 5 years) is LIC-MX100-ENT-5YR
Please be mindful that as the Amazon Machine Image states:
The vMX100 is designed to be used as a SD-WAN and AutoVPN node to easily connect your network to AWS services. Using the power of the cloud, Cisco Meraki's virtual MX can configure, monitor and maintain your VPN so you don't have to.
