Barracuda Networks has announced the availability of five new models of the Barracuda NG Firewall F600, all with increased performance. The new F600 models feature multiple port options, hot-swappable power supplies and data throughput of up to 5.7 Gbps, making them solutions for networks requiring high performance and high availability.
With configuration options of 1 GbE copper, 1 GbE fiber-optic and 10 GbE fiber-optic interfaces, the new product range would be ideal for internal LAN segmentation – and fast access to internal resources such as applications and databases. The models also allow rule-based traffic intelligence with WAN optimization, WAN compression and link management to ensure the best use of bandwidth across all locations.
Integrated, rack-friendly, redundant and hot-swappable power supplies can be included to ensure high fail-safe performance and high availability. Users would benefit from centralized management without limitations on the number of users.
