I see,
will you be able to offer anything cheaper (non cisco)?
the price drives me away, i only ordered one of those in the past for a project i needed to run, and it was a killer budget wise.

Please, I have dropped an e-mail in aswell, I did try e-mailing Oles but I tend to find his e-mail address to be a bit of a blackhole; however I can totally understand when being the owner of such a large company.

Is it possible for OVH to provide one of these options?

Hello
For more than 6 weeks, we have supply problems
Cisco ASA 5505 as a firewall and ASA 5520. Since 4 weeks we have
received any new piece. We have a lot of delay in
deliveries. Since 1 week, we have suspended new orders.

It is a worldwide shortage of this product here at Cisco. In
Basically, Cisco no longer produced any new firewall from the already
some time!? Apparently a supply problem in
Cisco on one of the electronic ASA would be behind
delays in production. Not many details
but the problem is much the whole world market for Cisco.

We are looking at firewalls competitors Cisco
but since we are already overworked in-house, we only
is not possible to validate the R & D before a new firewall
2-3 months. As we deploy the network in 2010 with
links across Europe + SDSL to implement it
We had to make a choice in R & D and we will integrate the new
Firewalls current summer vacation only once
major works on the routing will be completed (unless it includes as
miraculously 12 adminsys we seek ... but yes we hire
passionate people, smiling and only on the lanyard length ... work
Hard yes, but as it is cool and every day).

Hello,

For more than 6 weeks, we have had supply problems with Cisco ASA 5505 and ASA 5520 firewalls. We have not received any new ones for 4 weeks. We have a lot of delays in deliveries. For 1 week, we will suspend new orders.

It is a worldwide shortage of this product. Essentially, Cisco has not produced new firewalls for quite some time!? Apparently a supply problem on a Cisco ASA electronic elements is the cause of these delays in production. Not many details, but the problem concerns all of Cisco's global market.

We are looking at firewalls from Cisco competitors, but since we are already overworked in-house, it will not be possible to validate the R&D of a new firewall for 2-3 months. As we have the 2010 network to deploy with new links across Europe + SDSL to put in place, we had to make choices in R&D and we will integrate the current new firewalls only during summer holidays, once major works on the route are completed (unless it that we miraculously integrate 12 adminsys that we seek ... but yes they hire passionate people, smiling and only on long duration ... Hard work yes, but as it is cool and all day).

All the best,
Octave
