Vyatta has achieved a major new release of its community-supported, Debian-based Linux distribution aimed at turning commodity x86 hardware into enterprise routers, firewalls, and VPN appliances
Read it in the release announcement
Vyatta's flagship product is a commercially supported Linux distribution optimized for use as a combined router, firewall, and VPN (virtual private networking) server. It can be purchased as software, or preinstalled on Dell PowerEdge server hardware. The idea is that by using proprietary x86 hardware, rather than expensive, single-vendor hardware designs from Cisco or Juniper, Tier 2 Internet service providers and enterprises with large networks can save money and gain flexibility.
