Title: Which Protectli Device For Small Office?
Post by: IcarusOPN on February 16, 2021, 09:09:21 pm
I recently purchased a lower protectli device for my home network of about 30 devices. Works great and I am having a fun time experimenting with opnsense.

 Looking to get another protectli for my office which has many more devices:

20 ip cams
15 VOIP phones
20 pc workstations
5 network printers

2 24 port switches
8gb?16gb? or more?
120gb HD

Any other suggestions are appreciated

What about shopping here for business appliances?

That's an idea  ;D ;D ;D

Those look interesting. I'm wondering which would be better suited for my needs.
I'm assuming the base or 2nd option?

Are there any US based vendors you recommend?

Sorry, I avoid US based vendors - not for fundamental reasons but because I am living and working in Germany. Someone else needs to step in. I'd wholeheartedly recommend iXsystems if it was storage you are seeking.  ;)
