Cloud Hoster Router (CHR) is a feature, basically this feature is not a Mikrotik Licenses feature found on the RouterOS menu, but an image file used in the VM (Virtual Machine) application.
Mikrotik is able to add solutions for RouterOS users based on Virtual Machine. Even though it is still a “Test Version”, it has good performance.
Maybe those of you who often ‘play’ together with VMs, must be familiar with the re-mobilization of RouterOS on a PC that contains a Host Operating System, like Windows, Linux, MacOS.
In the current discussion, we will discuss the Cloud Hosted Router Mikrotik Licenses.
Different Types of Cloud Hosted Router
Licenses.license on CHR is basically the same as the license level 6 on X86 or on the Router Board. So you can configure all the features in Mikrotik. However, the only difference is the speed.
If you look at the speed limit column, the speed is Mbit, not Mbyte, if converted it might only be a few hundred bytes.
