So the applications where I've deployed vyatta have a lot to do with having a topological need for a router/firewall/ipsec tunnel termination point in a VM.

Im some cases I'm not particularly proud of the results. but it's not a use case that juniper presently addresses.

devices down in srx210/240/ja2320 land are a rather different keetle of fish in comparision to an mx80/mx240.
