Solution Brief

High Availability

The difference between failure and failover

Network administrators are expected to manage network resources to ensure optimal operations without degradation or disruption of services. Failure of non-redundant equipment in a critical system can cost thousands - even hundreds of thousands - in lost revenue, decreased productivity, and customer dissatisfaction. Your network needs to be reliable and a single point of failure can potentially lead to disastrous consequences.

Proprietary firewall companies would like to sell you specialty equipment, along with expensive licenses, providing a solution for you while putting a healthy commission check in their pocket. Then a year later, you have to repurchase the software licenses to run equipment you’ve already purchased. What’s worse, smaller companies may have to redirect a large portion of their IT spend just to maintain this proprietary solution.

pfSense® software running on a High Availability (HA) pair of Netgate® Security Gateways provides a simple, affordable solution. Since pfSense is open source, there are no software licensing fees.
