    Protectli like with 10G interfaces?

    Not really, cost isn't the issue - just like the small form factor and low power draw. We typically use rack mounted servers for firewalls, the fanless stuff is intriguing to me for CPE type stuff or even DC stuff that we don't need a full server. One of these I think pulls 60W at 100% load.

    Yea, they have a web interface that manages everything for the most part. Check the Proxmox site, they have some demo's on mgmt. You'll still need to do some deeper stuff from the CLI and knowing basic Linux would be helpful.
