I currently have two PIX 515E's, one is located at a collocation the other at our corporate location. We are looking at getting 2 more PIX's so we can have failover ability at both locations and I was told I should look into getting the ASA5500 series instead.
I have a few questions listed below.
1. What model ASA matches the PIX515E running the unrestricted bundle?
2. Is there a way to migrate the firewall config off of a PIX 515E to a ASA device? Because if we get 2 ASA models instead of 2 more PIX's I would move the corp 515E to the collocation and setup both ASA's at the corporate location.
3. As far as load balancing and redundancy is concerned, does the ASA or the PIX515E load balance or is it just failover ability?
4. With the Active/Active and Active/Standby what is the difference between the two? Some equipment vendors have different definitions for this.
