My small ALIX machine is not coping with the new demand for OpenVPN throughput I have. So I'm looking to replace it. Problem is, I don't have any experience with hardware sizing for OpenVPN. I'm looking for something that satisfies this profile:
- >= 100Mbit/sec Througput
- Cipher either AES-128-CBC or AES-256-CBC or Blowfish
- Small power footprint
I've been looking into pairing a small Atom single-core with a PCI GigE nic, but have my doubts.
What works for you? What can you recommend?
Any answers like "I get x Mbit/sec with this rig" also very much appreciated to get a feeling for it.
Thanks in advance.
