Just wondering if anyone knows if there is a vMX for VMware ? I have a large dc full of VMware hosts and it would be nice to be able to deploy a vMX there without adding new electronics to the environment (power requirements).... ?
We are a IaaS/PaaS provider hosted in our DataCentre on VMWare/Hyper-v. All of our customers have MX on-premise which have a site to site VPN back to our infrastructure which we then have to use a competitors Firewall product to terminate the VPNs back into our infrastructure. I would much prefer to use MX Auto vpn on provider side! Meraki is simply missing out on a large slice of license sales which we are just passing to a competitor as we run a virtual firewall for each customer in our infrastructure.
That's an interesting concept to me. I vm everything in my data center, but the one thing I haven't is my Internet edge. The idea of keeping that physically separate is still my preference for security, and the HA in MX is so easy to configure. It sounds like VmWare doesn't support it yet, so that answers that question but still a very interesting design thought if it becomes supported.
I would really like to see a vMX for VMware as well. Our IaaS/DRaaS provider (iland Cloud) runs VMware ESX, so the Azure and AWS offerings really do not work for us. We use MX at our office locations for SD-WAN and auto-VPN, but it's been a real pain point trying to operate without these features (using NSX), not to mention the single pane of glass.
