FTD Multi-Instance question

Hi there experts :)

 

Long waited feature is finally out,but info about is very hard to find so i'll try getting some answers here.

 

I have a project that involves very large number of contexts - 200. Mainly for purpose of dividing routing tables.

Idea was to get four 9300 series FTDs that would run ASA with multi-contex, but when Cisco announced multi-instance roll out we were under impresion that we could use this feature.

After reading Andrew Ossipov blog i got a feeling that multi-instance will be limited to just running separate ftd/asa image.

So, what will be max number of those multi-instances that can run in FTDs? My logic tell's me max 88 (because of CPU count on 9300).

 

Cheers

Hey Abheesh,

We are still looking at our options.

This is more about gathering info before we make our final move.

Multi-instance container scale limitations are documented here:

Only FTD is supported, not ASA logical devices. The maximum is 14 with Firepower 9300 and SM-44.
