Question about Application hosting support for the MX and the SRX routers families

[ Edited ]

Hi experts!

I saw some posts about vmx and how its deployed to allow Docker support for app hosting and also the ones about the SRX family app hosting capabilities, However, I am not 100% clear whether the entire MX and SRX routers family have support for app hosting via Docker or any other containers for applications hosting on the Box itself.


Do the SRX/MX routers family have those supportabilities?
I looked at the user guides, but apart from an on box Python scripting, I didnt see that there are options to allow applications hosting...

If there is such support, can you please refer me to some documentations about that, so that Ill be able to educate my customes about this?

Thanks,
Tom

The hardware SRX and MX devices are not general compute platforms and don't support running containers or other VM inside them.

 

These are the virtual platforms that can be deployed.

vSRX will run on KVM or vmware.

There is also a cSRX that will run inside a container system.

vMX that can be run on either KVM or VMware and does not currently have a container version officially.
