We used the Cisco Cloud Services Router 1000V Series to connect our on-prem network to our cloud environment in Microsoft Azure. We had some complicated routing and certain protocols we needed to pass that were not possible with the native VPN setup in Azure. The template was rather easy to find and "purchase" through the marketplace. Setup was the same via ios as on any isr.
  • Functions like any physical ISR router.
  • Can be sized according to need.
  • Easy to purchase and documentation was up to date.
  • Features on demand for more money is kind of annoying.
  • Seemed like there was an excessive amount of IP addresses I needed to assign to get it to work even though I didn't use them.
  • Cost is high for a piece of software.
If you just need to do simple communication to Azure such as smb and rdp sessions then the Cisco Cloud Services Router 1000V Series is overkill. If you need to setup multiple mesh vpn connections to existing ISRs and have complicated routing with multiple protocols then Cisco Cloud Services Router makes that setup much easier and less work to maintain and troubleshoot.

The Cisco Router 1000 V Series has been fantastic! We use it as a router at our main office for end-to-end managed connectivity. We use the router for firewalls, to reduce security threats and risks, and other issues.
  • Extends our network to a private cloud
  • Gives us more security
  • Provides more efficient connectivity
  • Implementation. Was a bit confusing at first
  • Price-- a bit costly
There are a number of scenarios in which the Cisco 1000 V Series is particularly well suited. Just a couple examples in our particular case would include reducing the over all security risk at our company as well as increasing network scalability (which proves to be crucial in an industry such as ours).

I am using this personally at my employer in order to simulate topologies and troubleshoot technologies.
  • Easy and available to download with a CCO account.
  • Full-featured router platform.
  • Can run as many instances as you have memory to handle.
  • No issues so far running in VMWare player 14.0.
  • Would be nice if the license expiration simply limited throughput rather than removing features.
  • Better compatibility with VMWare player would be nice. Specifically, making sure you open the serial console almost immediately after turning on the VM.
I've had as many as six VMs running concurrently on a laptop with 32 gigs. This makes it easy to lab up many routing/VPN scenarios. Great study and practice tool. This makes it easy to experiment with technologies or topologies that it would otherwise be difficult to do. How many people can say they've got a half-dozen or more full-featured routers available and the power to run them.

They provide a huge benefit and scalability to our IP transit networking. We also use them as for wan and QoS.
  • Quality of Service (QoS)
  • BGP
  • Scalability
  • Network Based Application Recognition (NBAR)
  • Netflow
  • More integration with the switching
  • A dynamic approach for software updates
  • More automation features and APIs
Well Suited:
  • IP transit and routing in general.

    They handle the MPLS, QoS and private routing superbly.
