We are currently looking at building out our Data Center to support a managed backup solution for multiple clients. We are currently looking at pushing the backups through a pair of ASA5580-20 appliances, however I have concerns as I haven't had much success with backups through a firewall in the past (albeit much smaller firewalls). Has anyone/Is anyone doing this now? Do you current see any performance degradation? What platform are you using? Thanks for your help.
What type of throughput do you recieve? The 5580 is rated at 5Gbps real-world and 10Gbps jumbo frames, and I have done some throughput tests on various other platforms and have not seen these types of results.
Yes, I have read all the marketing fluff, however I have learned by experience that this doesn't translate into real world results. I am looking for people currently doing this with this platform or another platform and what their experiences are.
The 5580 is a new product, so you'll likely not immediately find folks able to type a reply here indicating a successful deployment in this scenario.
That said, the 5580 is positioned for, among other roles, precisely the deployment you are looking at. I can confidently recommend this solution, assuming the bandwidth requirements are a match. The 5580 was tested with various traffic types and loads, consistent with your intended use. I would recommend 10Gb interfaces if you want to achieve 1Gb+ throughput for a given flow.
