In this article, we will look at how vJunos-switch and vJunosEvolved is deployed on a bare metal install of EVE-NG. This deployment will then be used to integrate with Juniper Apstra and build a complete Data Center fabric.
We’ll start with instructions on how to deploy EVE-NG as a bare metal install on an Ubuntu server and run through the EVE-NG installation itself as an example of how this can be done.  Once EVE-NG is setup, we’ll show how vJunos-switch and vJunosEvolved can be added to EVE-NG as a deployable node and the EVE-NG template that is needed for this to work.
