We are excited to announce a new addition to our XG product family. Please welcome the XG-1537! This is the replacement for the XG-2758 and we think you’ll be pleased with the new features it has to offer. This platform is targeted as a medium/high-range performance option, ideal for the medium to large business. It comes in a 1U chassis, ready to rack-mount in your data center or server room.
The XG-1537 features an 8-core, 16-thread Intel® Xeon® D-1537 processor with AES-NI to meet pfSense® software version 2.5 requirements. It comes with dual 10 Gbps SFP+ ports and dual 1 Gbps RJ-45 ports. It also supports an optional CPIC-8955 Cryptographic Accelerator Card with QuickAssist. The CPIC-8955 is used to offload encryption processing to gain hardware acceleration and measurable throughput performance of VPNs and other cryptographic functions.
Other options available include a 2-Port Chelsio 10Gbps card and fan for additional SFP+ ports or an Intel 4-port NIC card. RAID configurations and High Availability options are also available for mission-critical deployments.
With a great price-to-performance ratio, we expect the XG-1537 to become a quick favorite among our large customers who demand the most out of their pfSense Security Gateways.
Pre-orders are available now with an anticipated start-ship date of September 29, 2017.
