Does DO offer a virtualized firewall solution (such as cisco)?

We were curious if DO offered a solution for a virtual firewall (such as cisco, juniper, etc) whcih we could put in front of our droplets to configure the routing, and have all nodes appear as a 10.x.x.x behind said firewall. (We’d rather not have IPs which can talk to the world on each machine.)

Another bonus of this would be that we could set up and connect via VPN to administer our cluster(s).

Please advise.

DigitalOcean does not offer virtualized Cisco/Juniper appliance images, however there’s nothing stopping you from doing the exact same thing using a Linux droplet.
