Axiomtek - anyone?



  • Hi folks,

    I'm about to purchase an 'Axiomtek NA580' (Link).
    Adding an Intel Xeon 'E3-1225 v5' or 'E3-1275 v5', 16GB ECC RAM and a 'Samung 850 EVO' 250GB mSata SSD.
    Also I plan to add the 'Intel 8950 Coleto Creek' based 'Axiomtek NA E580' VPN accelerator card (Link) for the upcoming Intel QuickAssist support on FreeBSD/pfSense.

    Anyone has some experience with Axiomtek, maybe with the NA580 appliance?

    Thanks for sharing your opinions!



  • Axiomtek NA342 / NA342R
    since version 2.2.5

    Axiomtek NA343 / NA343R
    since version 2.3

    Axiomtek NA345
    since version 2.3

    Axiomtek NA361 / NA361R
    since version 2.2.5

    All are running pfSense well since 2.2.5 but here and there must or should be customizing´s
    or better tunings done. Likes enabling TRIM, high up the mbuf size and/or enabling PowerD.

    Would be a nice set up but I am really don´t knowing if pfSense will be playing nice with it.

    If you really need this or want this or what ever, you should be fair, because the hardware for assembling
    and coding is really hard to pay for, and call the pfSense shop, tell them that they are not selling what you
    are really needing, so you where assembling or choosing something by your own and you perhaps pay for
    that pfSense version then 200 € or something in that region for a pfSense version with Intel QuickAssist
    support, because I don´t really know if the normal public (Community Edition) available version will be
    coming together with Intel QuickAssist support for us all! It could really be that only the version for the
    Netgate or pfSense shop devices is sorted with that support.
