New PA820 replacing PA500

L2 Linker

Hi all,

Just wanted to get some ideas on performance of the PA820, right now our PA500 is acting as a router/gateway to internal lan, and will be migrating to the pa820, so if I were to keep the settings, like just migrate over the configs, will the pa820 perform better as a router, cause currently some users are complaining of slow intervlan performance with the pa500, has anyone gone through a similar migration, thanks in advanced.

@cdcirexx,

Massive improvements when using the PA-820 over the PA-500. Keep in mind that on the 500 if you had Threat Prevention enabled between intervlan traffic you were limited to 100Mbps of throughput; this goes all the way up to 610Mbps on the 820. Honestly I wouldn't have attempted your current configuration with a PA-500, the PA-820 would make this much more servicable and is actually advisable for smaller offices. 

Here's a really nice comparision between the two HERE

Thanks for the reply Bpry, yeah that's what made management decide to go with pa820, after seeing the comparison when we were shopping around for a replacement firewall, we just basically didn't size up our firewall first hand, that's why the slow intervlan.  We are a somewhat small shop about 70 users, with a 50mb upload/download, so we got room to grow with the pa820.
