    (From what I understand)

    In fact you dont need any firewall functionality, no complex loggin, 
no reporting, no intrusion detection...  so.

High availability, Load Balancing and NAT support:

    A pair of Foundry ServerIron XL would do the trick and cheap...  
They also have Gbps Uplink Ports (Copper/Fibre).
