Understand vSRX with Microsoft Hyper-V

This section presents an overview of vSRX as deployed in Microsoft Hyper-V.

vSRX in Microsoft Hyper-V

Microsoft Hyper-V is a hypervisor-based virtualization technology. It provides software infrastructure and basic management tools that you can use to create and manage a virtualized server computing environment. This virtualized environment can be used to address a variety of business goals aimed at improving efficiency and reducing costs. Hyper-V works on x86- and x64-based systems running Windows.

You deploy a vSRX virtual security appliance on a Microsoft Hyper-V server to provide networking security features for the virtualized server computing environment. Hyper-V implements isolation of virtual machines in terms of a partition. The vSRX virtual machine runs in Microsoft Hyper-V as a child partition.

Note the following for deploying vSRX on a Microsoft Hyper-V server:

  • Starting in Junos OS Release 15.1X49-D80 and Junos OS Release 17.3R1, you can deploy the vSRX only on Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 or 2012.

  • Starting in Junos OS Release 15.1X49-D100 and Junos OS Release 17.4R1, you can deploy the vSRX on Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2016.

Figure 1 illustrates the deployment of a vSRX in a Hyper-V environment to provide security for applications running on one or more virtual machines.
