Well the ASA5516-X was the last one to go end of sale. You may be able to get stock of the remainder of the ASA5500-X series as people clear their shelves, or they may be available as ‘refurb’ stock but they are disappearing.
So you would think that the replacements would be better documented? Well it’s sketchy at best, and when you look a the data sheets for the new FPR range the links on Cisco website go to the wrong place, or give you little or no guidance 🙁
I’ve put together the following to help, it’s not sanctioned by Cisco, (though I did engage Cisco Partner GVE to assist me. The following table shows FPR models that run ASA code, (not FTD code). I’m not a fan personally of the FTD solution, and I wont be deploying it anywhere for a client. But Standard Asa code keeps my support and network techs happy.
If you disagree with any of my recommendations, please post below, and (providing your objection is valid,) and I’ll update it accordingly.
