i know vyos for a long time, but I never used it in production mode before. Since we noticed that vyos can do EVPN-VXLAN with FRR, we are interested in using vyos.
The question in the topic says it all but I would like to describe it a bit deeper.
My requirement is:
- We are looking for a VNF (Virtual Network Function / virtualized router) which I would like to use in a VMware based virtualized environment
- We have VMware NSX running in the hypervisor-world. So we dont deal with VLAN based networks anymore, but we have Geneve based overlay networks in our virtualization.
- And we have EVPN based overlay network in our physical switching environment.
The Problem is, that Geneve and EVPN-VXLAN are not compatible.
Our goal is to merge virtualized L2 segments (which are based on VMware NSX) with physical L2 segments (which are EVPN-VXLAN segments).
General question: Is it possible to bridge interfaces in vyos?
And is it also possible to bridge a traditional interface (VLAN interface) with a EVPN-vxlan based interface/L2 VNI with vyos?
