Will this hardware work?



  • Hi everyone!

    My company is looking for a new 10GbE firewall. Previously we have used Cisco, which we think is very overpriced.
    We have been looking for some hardware to run pfSense, but we don't really know if it will work with pfSense.

    So does anyone know if this hardware will work with pfSense before we spend $4500 on the server?

    2x Intel Xeon E5-2640 v3 2.6GHz,20M Cache,8.00GT/s QPI,Turbo,HT,8C/16T (90W) Max Mem 1866MHz
    1x 2133MT/s RDIMMs
    2x 16GB RDIMM, 2133MT/s, Dual Rank, x4 Data Width
    1x PERC H330 Integrated RAID Controller
    1x Intel X710 Quad Port 10Gb Direct Aattach, SFP+, Converged Network Adapter
    1x On-Board LOM 1GBE, Quad Port

    The above mentioned hardware is copy-pasted directly from the offer we got from Dell.
    Thanks in advance!
