The Vault is a small form network appliance built for use as a firewall / router, virtualization platform, a daily-driven personal computer, and more. The VP2420 is another addition to the Vault Pro series. It is a 4 x 2.5 G network port design that leverages a low power, but versatile Intel Celeron J6412 CPU. This CPU supports AES-NI, Intel’s Hardware Acceleration for Encryption. The Vault uses standard Intel components (including Intel network ports) which results in compatibility with a variety of operating systems, including a number of open source firewall projects. The Vault is fanless so it has no moving parts, which results in an incredibly durable platform that can be used in less than ideal environments. Its all aluminum enclosure (no plastic here) is a giant heat sink, keeping the CPU cool.
The VP2420 can accommodate up to 32 GB DDR4 RAM and 2 TB M.2 SATA SSD storage drive (Note: The VP2420 supports M.2 SATA drives, not NVMe drives). The built-in 8 GB eMMC module can be used for booting a light-weight OS for example, or for use as optional storage.
Note: Unfortunately Mac support for the serial connection drivers is not currently available. For the latest Windows drivers please see this link.
