Would netgate hamakua work for this setup?
hi! need a router for 100mbps colo. currently i have web, email and database servers there with 20 ipsec tunnels (5mbps tops). i'm doing 150pps on average with spikes to 800pps.
i also wanna know if there is anything out there similar to hamakua but with 6 net ports. my budget is $700-$800
That's more than adequate for that kind of volume. Not a whole lot of lower priced options with 6 ports. Couple old servers could come in under that price, setup with CARP to address the higher likelihood of hardware failure.
would crypto card help to unload the cpu or is it just a waste of money?
what about linitx FX5622, is it any good?
found network appliance with intel celeron 440 2ghz, 1gb ram and 6 giga ports on Intel 82574 controller. bit over my budget but should do the trick
