Hardware for Enterprise Site.
Im trying to figure out if the servers that I have currently will suffice for our company.
We have a 250MB Ethernet Line from our HQ to our Data Center, times 2 (we have 2 data centers). Each data center is connected to our HQ with a 250MB E-Line.
Im also running a WIFI Connection. A DMZ Interface. A 100 MB Local Internet by XO.
So, a total of 4 interfaces will be used for this Firewall.
250MB x2 (Data Centers)
100MB x2 (Internet)
80MB x1 (WIFI usage)
For that amount of data, would this server suffice?
I have the server already, just wanted to know if it will hold all that traffic?

Thanks for your help…
Depends what packages you're going to run and what total throughput you need. For just NAT/firewall you should have no problems though.
