So yes, that is a V as in Virtual! Finally, IOS XRv has been released – and on the latest IOS-XR code, 5.1.1!
So a few things about IOS XRv – first of all, it is a 32–bit softwrae version running on the QNX microkernel. The VM contains a single RP and a some LC Interfaces.
The demo version of the software is FREE for users, has AAA hard-coded users in it, and is rate-limited to 2 Mbps. There is also a Simulation Image available and has no hard-coded users and is rate-limited to 50 Mbps. Finally there is a Production Image that has no hard-coded users and no rate-limit.
WOW! That is what I have to say about what Social Media has become at Cisco Live US. A few years ago – back in good ole 2011 – we started our “tweet up” at a paltry table in Las Vegas and nicknamed it “Tom’s Corner.” Why Tom’s Corner – because Tom (@networkingnerd) was always there it seemed like! It quickly became the place where all of us on Social Media would meet-up after sessions, between sessions, or just wanted to chill out.
