The Cisco CSR 1000V Series Cloud Services Router provides a cloud-based router that is deployed on a virtual machine (VM) instance on x86 server hardware. The Cisco CSR 1000V provides selected Cisco IOS XE features on a virtualization platform.
When the Cisco CSR 1000V virtual IOS XE software is deployed on a VM, the Cisco IOS XE software functions just as if it were deployed on a traditional Cisco hardware platform. The Cisco CSR 1000V includes a virtual Route Processor and a virtual Forwarding Processor (FP) as part of its architecture. The Cisco CSR 1000V supports a subset of Cisco IOS XE software features and technologies.
The Cisco CSR 1000V provides secure connectivity from the enterprise premise (such as a branch office or data center) to the public or private cloud.
