The vEdge Cloud is a virtualized version of the vEdge router, inheriting all the capabilities offered on Viptela’s physical branch routers. vEdge Cloud can be instantiated as a virtual machine (VM) on a KVM hypervisor or as a VM on a VMware ESXi hypervisor, as well as in public cloud environments, such as Amazon AWS. vEdge Cloud can be used as a Virtual Network Function (VNF) for a Virtual CPE (vCPE) deployment at the branch. It can also be used as a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) Gateway for customers that have workload residing in Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Start and Configure the vEdge Cloud Router
To start the vEdge Cloud router, you create a VM instance for it on a server on which the VMware vSphere ESXi Hypervisor or the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) Hypervisor software is installed. For server requirements, see Server Hardware Requirements.
To create a vEdge Cloud VM instance, see Deploy the vEdge Routers.
To configure the vEdge Cloud router, see Configure the vEdge Routers.
vEdge Cloud Router Default Configuration
Each vEdge Cloud router has a default configuration. The default configuration file sets the default CLI prompt to vEdge#, configures OMP, and enables logging of syslog messages to a file.
The default configuration file looks like this:
