Just wanted to add @bj to this thread that I think a $100-ish Cloud Router from Mikrotik would blow most hardware away, including Ubiquiti, on pure performance. With the $50 and under models you are still getting 1 million PPS. The new cloud router series really has a crazy amount of power.
This still coming from a pure PPS (packets per second) point of view.
I think the cheapest cloud router has 12 to 16 cores That would only count for the core routers I am more familiar with (12 to 24 now) in the $500 range.
Very poor marketing in the states but very popular with western country WISPS.
To sign into the domain, your VPN goes up first. To sign into the laptop, you sign in cached and then fire up the VPN. There is a reason that VPN-first systems like OpenVPN, Pertino, ZeroTier, etc. are so important. They let you do things like central revocation because they always get updates from AD.
Correct. this is the problem. always.
How does that work when they are on a wifi connection that doesn't connect until after they log in to their laptop?
You have cached creds for that. Log in, connect, reboot.
"A Group is a collection of Backblaze users. All Groups have billing centrally managed by an administrator and allow administrators to keep track of the Group member’s backup statuses, B2 usage, and any alerts that members may have on their Backblaze accounts. Best of all, Groups bring added functionality to Backblaze at no extra cost."
I mean I know it all sucks and it would be awesome if all the right people got all the right info and took all the right actions. but they don't and won't. So we need to push everyone that we can to do what they can. It's just what we have to work with.
