I funded a Kickstarter for the Zimaboard project a couple years ago, and I finally received my 2x boards (an 832 I’m using for Docker and a 216 I’m using for VyOS). I received my boards about a month ago, and I knew I wanted to use the 216 for a VyOS system. I wiped the eMMC clean and installed VyOS 1.4 rolling, then set it up at my work desk for lab testing. We have dual gigabit fiber at work, and being a SysAdmin I work in our network closets quite a bit. I got permission from our IT Manager, and I setup a cross connect from the Spectrum switch to a port at my desk, and used 1 IP off our block. During the business day, I have been able to pull 800 Mbps up and down while our main network also uses the connection.

There are several 3D prints available on printables.com for various add-ons, and the community is planning more.
Due to COVID in China, shipping is taking a while to get underway, but the product has been great and build quality is excellent.
