Cheaper alternative to Warp by Fatpipe?
Posted on 2010-08-29
We currently use WARP by Fatpipe for WAN optimization and Bandwidth Mangement. Basically put, we have three different Internet connections: T1, Highspeed Cable, and DSL. We use WARP to control which network traffic uses which Internet Connection. For example, all traffic from 192.168.X.X goes through the T1 and all traffic generating from 10.10.x.x goes through the Cable line...etc. My concern is if the WARP Appliance ever dies, we lose all Internet connectivity. I would like to have a standby device, that is already preconfigured in case the WARP appliance fails. However, I don't want to spend the money on a duplicate device that may just sit their and never be used. Can anyone suggest and alternative that we can have on standby just in case that is cheaper than the WARP/Fatpipe appliance?
