Adaptive Security Appliance
Release 9.0 of the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) firewall operating system is optimized for data center duty, Cisco says, by scaling to 320Gbps of firewall throughput and 60Gbps of IPS throughput, and supporting one million connections per second and 50 million concurrent connections. Release 9.0 also supports clustering of up to eight physical ASA devices so scale can be managed as a single entity.
