Sizing of DC-Gateways

Question regarding sizing

Hello together,

I have a qeustion regarding sizing of new gateways. My Company thinks about to exchange Cisco ASA 5585 against Check Point Gateways.
Which gateways would you recomend?

Here are some date what is needed:

*Multicast (a lot of multicastgroups)
*Cluster (active/standby or loadbalancing)
*Identity Awareness
*1500000 concurent session (at the moment)
*~5GBit/s throughput (at the moment)
*10GBit Interfaces (at the moment a bond with 4 X 10 GBit)

As a matter of course there should be enough spare, regarding performance, for future use and growing of traffic.
The gateways are planned for datacenter-use, so VPN is not needed

Any hint would be appreciated.
Thank you for your help in advance.

Best regards

A 15400 is the rough equivalent to the ASA 5585.

To account for growth, you might consider a 15600 or higher (depending on expected rate of growth).

Your local Check Point SE should be able to fine tune this recommendation.

thank you for your reply. The post was only about to get a feeling what we need. Of course we will discuss this topic with our Check Point Partner. Maybe someone here in the community has similar needs and therefor a recomendation or experience.
