I am looking at deploying this at several customers sites and I would love to be able to just sell them a branded-device.
Does anyone use or have a whitebox vendor that does small-form factor / SOHO / desktop appliances in small quantities?
Here is what I am thinking:
A small network device type box (think 8 or 10 port switch size)
Color options would be good (red for a firewall or maybe my company color(s))
Possibly a pair of 2.5", 16GB SSD in a RAID1
Intel Core 2 Duo or Intel Atom processor
2GB+ of RAM
Anyone have something like this, know where I can find it or has a vendor that could make it?
Thanks in advance!
Okay, here is what I ended up going with:
Lian Li Mini-Q PC-Q07 case in red
Jetway 7F4K1G5S-LF mainboard w/
VIA C7-D processor running at 1.5Ghz
Dual Gigabit NIC (RealTek RTL8110SC)
2 SATA ports
8 USB ports
1GB of Corsair DDR2 at 533MHz (VS1GB533D2)
Rosewill RC-402 10/100 NIC (Realtek RTL8100c)
Rosewill AP-400X, 350-watt power supply
Koutech IO-ASC100 SATA to Compact Flash Adapter
RiDATA 4GB Supreme Series 300X(45MB/s reads & 31MB/s writes)
Now, let me just tell you that this system ROCKS! Using the CF card is like having an SSD, and this thing is completely quite! With this configuration I can have an internet, internal/trusted & a DMZ interface. This makes my configuration options very flexible.
The only thing I am working through at this point is that web-browsing is noticably slower through the appliance. I am thinking it has to do with the web-filter but I am working with Kerio on identifying that and correcting the speed issues.
I will keep everyone posted on my progress!
