Well, it's a competitor to the edgerouter X pricewise, and my hope
would be with the cache coherent I/O and the arm v8s that it could
push 1Gbit with ease out each port, regardless of offloads. USB3 makes
for high speed nas capability, (although I have high hopes for usb-c
on something router-ish someday). Also I am gradually thinking we'll
start seeing more 2.5gbit ethernet over TP. And there's a mini-pcie
slot for wifi-card-of-choice...
all at a pricepoint that's lower than almost anything I've seen with
Who knows, perhaps the "full SDK" will allow for programming the
/me drinks some kool-aid
Downsides: Globalscale, historically, has had heat issues in their
designs. And it is quite far from shipping, as yet.
