ITGuy85 -> Best ISA 2006 Appliance? (25.Jul.2007 9:28:29 PM)

I'm in the US, and looking for the best ISA appliance. I've narrowed it down to nAppliance and Celestix. Celestix seems to be a more established company with a longer history. However nAppliance hardware specs are beefier (RAID-1, dual quad core processors, hot-swap powersupplies). But they seem to be a tiny and very new company.

I'm a big fan of HP, but it looked like their ISA appliance was merely a basic server with ISA installed. I didn't see any flash-based restore options, SSL options, or headless mode with an LCD display for configuration.

If nAppliance was larger and more established, hardware wise they beat the socks off Celestix.

I don't know anything about nAppliance, but I know that Celestix has a very good reputation and excellent product support.

    I have a Celestix (decided for a rackmount appliance rather than a little PC server I made before). The product is great and works with few problems but the support is terrible in my opinion. They do try to help you as much as possible but I always find myself sitting through a call with them for two hours with little to no progress and I usually end up fixing the problems myself.

Hi P,

I'm surprised to hear that. There must have been some big changes in their support group, because they used to be quite good.

Celestix support tries to give everyone the best support possible. The challenge comes from being confronted with dozens of different network configurations, third party software and personal touches associated with the unique environments. We will never have all the answers, but it is our hope that we can have most of them.

That's good to hear. Yes, I often run into people who try to turn toasters into blenders -- it doesn't work very well :)
