FWIW I've been running a UDM Pro for about 6 months and I haven't had to restart it once I got it configured.

Was running Sophos XG in a VM previously and while the UDM Pro doesn't have quite the same amount of options I don't have any complaints with the UDM Pro at home.

I appreciate the feedback. The most important factor in my decision is future proofing the hardware for the next 5+ years. I'm aware of a Wireguard kernel module but it doesn't look as easy to install vs. Wireguard in pfSense.

For home use and wireguard can run it off an intel celeron pretty much, just needs AES-NI for OpenVPN

Good to know I won't need AES-NI. How reliable are used Dell R210/220 1U servers for pfSense purposes? Do I run a risk from them crapping out in a few years since they're refurbished?

Find an older thin client that allows for a half height pcie card.

here's the site btw if anyone wants to look more into it -

these guys have enterprise solutions, but for now traefik hub (which is what I was talking about above) is free. I can't see this being free forever, but I'd gladly pay a small fee for the pure convenience.
Also, back when I first used traefik ~4 years ago it was a small project. Now it looks like they've gotten huge & have some big enterprise clients :o. Worth keeping an eye on if they ever decide to go public as a SaaS company.
Traefik is decently big in the container/Kubernetes space, both for load balancing/proxy, and for service mesh.

Their core products are OSS and have a decent level of entry in terms of ease of use.

I'd buy new hardware if that's what you're after.

R210 is going to be a giant power hog.
