    Hello Team ,

     

    As a partner working on MX modular platforms . Could You verify if Juniper have any OEM x86 platform (server or appliance) that allow them to setup VMware or MS virtual environment? We have to know if Juniper platform supports this kind of server .

     

    We would really appreciate your quick response .

     

    Thanks in advance !

    Juniper does not provide any hypervisor appliances. You have to find the hardware for a virtualization infrastructure elsewhere.

    There is a partnership with Nutanix where vSRX has recently been certified for - but not something you can buy from Juniper.

     

    In general both VMWare and KVM is supported for all virtual platforms but only HyperV on a very few (with limitations as well).

    Hello Jonas, 

     

    Thank you so much for your response . 

     

    I understand that , but does juniper have any router or appliance which is x86 CPU system based , where we can install vmware on top of that . something related to service containerization/App hosting virtualization on OS feature .

     

    But we are looking speciafically to Vmware deployment over Juniper box/applicance . 

     

    Appreciate your quick response .

     

    Thanks in advance.

    There is no Juniper products/platforms where you can run VMware on top. The closest match is the NFX platform where you can deploy a few virtual machines. This is integrated into a Junos management infrastructure and KVM based. You cannot create a "KVM cluster" based on NFX.

     

    If you want to explore this path, the NFX250 is the closest match.
