vMX for VmWare

Hey Meraki Community....

 

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).... ?

 

Cheers

Phill.

Negative, no VMware based vMX at this point.

Ok so it appears I'm left looking at a vMX in azure with s-2-s vpns to my existing DC firewalls... not awesome but probably workable.

@Phill_Northwood I would be interested to here more about your use case. VMWare seem to be pushing their AWS and NSX story hard here in Scandinavia.

Re: vMX for VmWare

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.

Re: vMX for VmWare

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.
