HIGHLIGHTS OF vMX100

Summary

Virtual MX is a virtual instance of Meraki security & SD-WAN appliance, dedicated specifically to providing the simple configuration benefits of site-to-site Auto VPN for customers running or migrating IT services to an Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). A virtual MX is deployed on an AWS EC2 instance or an Azure VM and then configured in the Meraki dashboard, just like any other MX. It functions as a VPN concentrator.

An Auto VPN to a virtual MX is like having a direct Ethernet connection to a private data center. The virtual MX can support up to 500 Mbps of VPN throughput, providing ample bandwidth for mission-critical IT services hosted in AWS or Azure, like Active Directory, logging, or file and print services.

Secure connections built to a virtual MX benefit from the same SD-WAN capabilities as a physical MX appliance. An optimal path can be maintained using Dynamic Path Selection, for traffic destined for regular servers in a data center behind a physical MX, or virtual servers behind a virtual MX.
