I am thinking things like OpenBGPd and BIRD could make a good route reflector though they are most often discussed in the context of IXPs (ie eBGP sessions).

Any thoughts on vRR vs. vMX for this use case? I see Mark called out vRR
as having morphed into vMX, but AFAIK vRR is just vMX minus the forwarding
plane, is targeted as an out-of-path reflector, and coexists with vMX as a
different deployment option rather than having been replaced by it. I
would assume that vRR should come in a few bucks lower than the vMX as a
result, but I've only previously gotten quotes on vRR not vMX.
