[VyOS] is an open source network operating system that is based on Debian GNU/Linux and that joins multiple applications such as Quagga, ISC DHCPD, OpenVPN, StrongS/WAN and others under a single management interface. It can be installed on physical hardware or on virtual machines and it is a community fork of [Vyatta].
