After a recent spate of hardware lock-ups and random reloads I decided to replace my ASA5505. It was the first cisco device I ever purchased and set me on my networking career, but it was playing up so I decided to swap it out for a Juniper SRX110H2-VA.
As far as I can tell they are a rivals in the same same branch office space, albeit both a bit long in the tooth and poor relation to newer models; 5506X and SRX300.
I’ve never used Junos before and once I realised the significance of the commit command it’s been a pleasant experience. So much so that I am embarking on JNCIx certification track. I’ve the first JNCIA-junos booked for next week!
