* Disk storage sizes are approximate, and represent the largest configuration available for the appliance. When referring to drive capacity, one terabyte, or TB, equals one thousand billion bytes and one gigabyte, or GB, equals one billion bytes. The operating system may use a different standard of measurement and report a lower capacity. Some of the listed capacity is used for formatting and other functions and will not be available for data storage.
† Actual performance depends on network traffic. Stated specifications represent the fastest configuration available for the appliance, however, other configurations are also available for specific use cases. Forward node estimates assume a separate Manager Node is used.
‡ The SOS 10000 and GoBig Forward Throughput rating is achieved without full packet capture.
