ASA X-series firewalls difference & multi context features

Does anyone have a quick guide to show the feature differences between the X and regular ASA series firewalls?

And does this still hold true WRT multi-context ASA in the X-series?

No multi-context.....

- If you need to provide VPN services such as remote access or site-to-site VPN tunnels.

- If you need to use dynamic routing protocols. With multiple context mode, you can use only static routes.

- If you need to use QoS.

- If you need to support multicast routing.

- If you need to provide Threat Detection.

tia,

Will

ASA X-series firewalls difference & multi context features

A few changes in the new ASA version 9.0 (supported on both ASA and ASA-X series):

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa90/release/notes/asarn90.html#wp586890

In multiple context mode, it does support the following:

- Site to site VPN tunnels only.

- Dynamic routing protocols: EIGRP and OSPFv2 only.

- QoS is not supported.

- Multicast routing is not supported.

- Thread Detection is not supported

Here is the unsupported feature on multiple context as off Version 9.0:
