I was an end user of a Juniper SSLVPN appliance, and so were 1000's of
my colleagues.  I would definitely recommend doing their own
verification of how many sessions these appliances require.  I know my
organization had to add a lot more appliances to get performance up to
what they consider an acceptable speed.  What they consider acceptable
speed is not wire speed for many US broadband users.

I don't know what the exact numbers are, but I suspect they can handle
closer to 100's of sessions than 1000's of sessions.

Sorry for going off-topic.
