VyOS provides a free and open source routing platform that competes directly with other commercially available solutions from well known network providers. Because of the fact that VyOS runs on standard x86 systems, it is able to be used as a router and firewall platform for cloud deployments.
After Brocade Communications stopped development of the Vyatta Core Edition of the Vyatta Routing software, a small group of enthusiasts took the last Community Edition, and worked on building an Open Source version to live on in place of the end of life VC.  
VyOS version 1.0.0 (Hydrogen) was released on December 22, 2013. This release is built on Debian Squeeze and is available as a 32-bit image for physical machines (i386), a 64-bit image - both physical and virtual (amd64), and a 32-bit image for virtual machines (i386-virt).
Keeping with the naming convention the next major release will be Helium.

The OVA image can be downloaded from the standard download sites, or can be downloaded from VMware.
