We are a software development firm that currently delivers our install ISOs via Sourceforge. We need to start serving them ourselves for marketing reasons and are therefore increasing our bandwidth and getting a 2nd ISP in our datacenter. Both ISPs will be delivering 100mbit/sec links. We don't expect to increase that for the next year or so and expect average traffic to be about 40-60mbit/sec.
We are planning to run two OpenBSD based firewalls (with CARP and pf) running OpenBGP in order to connect to the two ISPs.
I saw from previous email that Quagga was recommended as opposed to OpenBGP. Any further comments on that? Also, any comments on the choice of OpenBSD vs. Linux?
I don't want to start a religious war :-) Just curious about what most folks are doing and what their experiences have been.
Thanks in advance,
Technical Operations Manager
