The perfect 1U solution for PFSense and other firewalls!
30 June 2014
Summary: I purchased this machine to replace my aging P4 based pfsense server. The old Poweredge 750 is solid as a rock, but it is noisy and uses a lot of power given its firewall duties. Enter this SuperMicro. This particular machine has the two Gbit Ethernet interfaces required for use as a firewall. It also has an internal USB connector for embedded OS/appliance installed on a low profile USB flash drive. The SYS-5015A-H is very quiet.
