Hardware for 1Gps Internet



  • Hi, I was wondering if a Supermicro C2558 with 8GB running on a SSD, would be able to handle a 1Gps connection. I believe the only think I need is it to handle a VPN connection.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi,
    What throughput are you hoping to get across the VPN? You won't get close to 1Gbps with that, not yet at least.

    No you wont! Also with the C2758 you might be not really hitting the 1 GBit/s range! Do a forum search
    about that and you will be found many threads about that.

    If you choose the IPSec VPN you will be benefit from the AES-NI over AES-GCM algorithm.

    For a real GBit/s at the WAN today or at the time you will need something that is more
    Intel Core i3, i5, i7 or Xeon E3 that will be able to saturate one link with 1000 MBit/s.
