VyOS is an open source network operating system based on Debian GNU/Linux.[4]

VyOS provides a free routing platform that competes directly with other commercially available solutions from well known network providers. Because VyOS is run on standard amd64, i586 and ARM systems, it is able to be used as a router and firewall platform for cloud deployments.[5][6]

History[edit]

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 fork to live on in place of the end of life VC.[7][8]

Releases[edit]

VyOS version 1.0.0 (Hydrogen) was released on December 22, 2013.[9][10] On October 9, 2014 version 1.1.0 (Helium) was released.[11] All versions released thus far have been based on Debian 6.0 (Squeeze), and are available as a 32-bit images and 64-bit images for both physical and virtual machines.[10]

Keeping with the naming convention the next release will be Lithium.
