Upgrading the Pro version of the Fireware XTM OS delivers enhanced networking features including dynamic (BGP4, OSPF, RIP v1/2) and policy-based routing, multi-WAN failover, and multi-WAN load balancing, plus it increases the number of SSL tunnels available to 11.
High availability (active/active) with load balancing provides redundancy, with session state synchronization. Two-appliance clustering allows appliances to be managed as a single unit, but with the combined performance of both.
Server load balancing
Server load balancing makes it easy to protect public-facing e-commerce "server farms."
Policy-based routing allows you to specify outgoing interface per service to enhance network bandwidth management and reduce costs.
VLANs let you create logical rather than physical network configurations that reduce hardware requirements, increase control over traffic types, provide rich interoperability, and make it easy to create subnets.
Dynamic routing (BGP, OSPF) maximizes network flexibility, redundancy, and efficiency by dynamically updating routing tables.
