vMX-Prem-40G hardware

‎05-01-2019 04:11 AM

Hello,
Can anyone guide me about vMX-Prem-40G hardware. Does it mean 4x10G port on server/cloud instance  are used to configure the vMX-PREM-40G OR it meanx 2x10G port on server/cloud instance?

its licensing is based on per user ? Microsoft azure is offering it as a service.

Thanks in advance.

The vMX licensing is feature + throughput based.

 

Throughput is actual throughput aggregated across all active interfaces. You can technically have eg. 8 x 10G interfaces assigned to your vMX but run it on a 1G license as long as you don't exceed the 1G throughput.

The 40G definition is "40G received and sent out" - matching 20G full-duplex.

 

In regards to hardware requirements, please look at https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/vmx/topics/reference/general/vmx-hw-sw-minimums.html

 

Feature differences is described here: https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/vmx/topics/concept/vmx-licensing.html

I believe vSRX is throughput based, so 40G is 20G full duplex, but the vMX licensing is for full duplex operation.  So a 40G license is 40G both ways.

From my knowledge discussing this with Juniper SE's it's still throughput-based even that you link states full-duplex. The capacity is based on how much traffic you send out egress. So yes a 1G license will give you 1G in- and outbound... but not 1G both ways at the same time.

 

I will ask again and revert with information - and ask to get the documentation changed if needed.
