Can Juniper SSG20 be used for hosting purposes

Hi, i would like to find out if Juniper firewall model SSG20 can be used for hosting purposes. I have a server which is hosting a site and this site has about 500,000 visitors per day. Will this firewall be good enough?

Please don't recommend other firewall as I already have this spare firewall in hand, just want to put up for this client and save few thousand bucks :).

Base on their specs, they can support maixumum 4000 concurrent sessions and new sessions/seconds is 2800. What does this mean? I'm not planning to use the antivirus, and etc, only the firewall alone, no VPN needed also.

Thanks in advance and cheers for now.

This firewall can handle the traffic you're asking for and when especially you have only firewall functions.

4000 concurrent sessions means, there can be 4000 users connected through the firewall at the same time (one session would be, say a browser connected to the http server) which is good enough.

2800 new sessions/seconds means, this device is capable of inspecting and making 2800 connections per second to the http server per second.

Hope that is clear.
