Lowest power consumption board capable of vpn a 300/300 line
I am looking for a pfsense board to do some basic firewalling and create a vpn tunnel for a 300/300 Mbit/s line (nothing more). Low power consumption specially during idle is important, more than purchase low price, I do not mind paying more if it means less power consumption.
Something like the Netgate SG-1000 would be ideal but I am guessing it will not be able to process 300/300 vpn encryption despite having crypto acceleration since it is only a 1 core A-8 600Mhz. Is there any other ARM board with a more modern SoC that can run pfSense? I have been unable to find anything. If it is not ARM, can anyone point a board that can meet the requirements and has low power consumption, specially on idle?
there is no pfSense that is able to run on ARM (except perhaps development builds at netgate HQ)
as for filling the 300mbit: that'll depend on the type/brand of vpn you wish to run ==> IPSEC vpn has aes-ni support that can dramatically speed up crypto / openvpn doesn't currently support it.
i haven't tried aes-ni ipsec on any of the c2758 atom boards at work (see https://store.pfsense.org/SG-8860-1U/ )… others could probably confirm of deny if that'll be able to handle what you need
