Home internet acccess with 1gb but...

Hello,

 

Looking for suggestions and recommendation,  just got an offer from the ISP to upgrade the Internet speed to 1Gig down and 10Mbps up for a very good price.  Except I have a PA220, the spec is good for 500Mbps with AppID and 150Mbps with threat.    That just won't fly.  I am aware the 220 can do better than 500Mbps.  I don't think I can go to 32xx series.  The other option is go to VM series.    I want to see anyone is using VM series for their home production firewall and what type of hardware are they running.   It will be great if can share their hardware spec.

 

Thanks,

@nextgenhappiness,

I'll have to look at the specs when I get home, but I simply took an older server from work and installed ESXi on it and installed a VM-100 VM to be utilized as a firewall. It has 2 vCPUs as required, 8GBs of memory, and something like a 75GB drive assigned to it at the moment.
