AVIATRIX VALIDATED DESIGN Aviatrix Designs for Cisco CSR 1000v Migrations Overview The Aviatrix cloud network platform offers enterprise customers a superior, cloud aware alternative to Cisco Cloud Services Router (CSR) deployments. In the past, many early cloud adopters sought to maintain operational familiarity with Cisco hardware products they have on-premise by using the CSR 1000v virtual appliances. Enterprises who have migrated away from a CSR-based transit network to Aviatrix Transit did so for several reasons that we will detail in this validated design guide, including: • Operational Gain – Modern, central control replaces legacy device-by-device discrete config file CLI mgt • Visibility – Detailed multi-cloud topology and flow visualization, overcomes effectively no cloud network visibility • Performance – CSR link throughput is < 1.25 Gbps with ~5 Gbps backplane; Aviatrix delivers up to 70 Gbps on both • Route Table Limitations – Aviatrix delivers thousands of route table entries; CSR is limited by VGW attachment to 100 This validated design guide explores these drivers for migrating from CSRs to Aviatrix Transit and provides several network d esigns and migration plans that have been proven by Aviatrix customers. Aviatrix make it simple to migrate from legacy CSR implementations to Aviatrix Transit and if desired, Aviatrix "White Glove" service teams are available to help plan and execute the transition with you.
