We have a couple of data centres, multiple Extranet & Internet connections, 2000 PCs & VoIP phones, 400+ Servers. I'm wondering what types of features I should consider when evaluating different vendors. Here's what I have so far: Layer 2 transparency, 802.1q (VLAN), Multi-layer (L1-L4) QoS support 802.1p, IPS, non-stop fail-over, GUI management, UTM/SIM intergration, VPN concentrator, feature-rich NAT/PAT, IPv6, SNMP3 & NETFLOW9, IGP/Multicast passthrough, dynamic routing (RIPv2,OSPFv4, BGPv4), VRF, time based rule scheduling, antivirus, physical & OS modularity, fast reboot, intelligent troubleshooting tool-set. What else would be on your wish-list if you were in my shoes?" top

Click on TPB's new logo and you will redirected to their buysealand.com website where they have setup a public forum allowing anonymous posts, but specifically stating their very brief Plan A & Plan B intentions and asking for Paypal donations. Apparently, the owners of Sealand are looking to sell the man-made island for an unspecified sum — which some external sources value at an incredible 750Million Euros! Seeing as the entire Wikipedia is struggling to raise even $1Million in donations, I doubt the TPB will succeed in raising enough funds... but hey, maybe if enough slashdotters contribute, perhaps they can at least proceed with a much needed paint job."
