Re: Replace Old FortiGate 200B With New FortiGate
All true but still there is a fine line between SoC models and those with a proper CPU.
Up to and including the 100E/F, these FGTs are considered "desktop models" and feature a SoC3/4. There are tasks which demand high CPU performance, like session buildup, SSLVPN, IPsec tunnel buildup (not: usage) and more. A look into the datasheet will reveal if these figures suit your needs - and future needs.
I personally was always grateful to my customer when he decided for a 'real' FGT. Work on and manage a 60X and then a 600X and you'll see what I mean. There is a reason why the 1500D with several Xeon multicore CPUs still is around a lot, though being a D series model.
