    Hi All,

    Thanks for your attention to our Nebula device.

    The NSG and USG Flex main difference as below:
    USG Flex will have:
    1. NebulaFlex (hybrid mode).
    2. Security profile synchronization to multiple sites.
    3. Supported more than 2 WANs.
    4. Much better UTM performance and leveraging ATP's malware protection technology.

    Hope it helps.

    Hi Chris,

    I was just wondering when similar Nebula GW will become available ? The new Flex models are much more powerful with a much lower power envelope. I like the Nebula stuff but I feel they are always a bit behind. I’m looking into a new router/gw and eying on the nebula stuff as I already have the AP’s. Also there you see a similar evolution. 
    With the new Flex models it becomes feasible to have a low power high performance setup at home without having to install it somewhere to avoid the noise of fans making you deaf :)

    Thanks for your support. :)
    In current stage USG Flex only support standalone mode, the schedule of cloud mode will be on next year of half.

    @Nebula_Chris
    Do you mean second half of the year ?
    is there an update foreseen for the pure Nebula stuff ? I would like to replace my current router (Draytek), Draytek fanless POE at and hp switch by some nebula stuff. Certainly on the Poe a good 8 port fanless option is something hard to find ?

    Hello @Wicky
    It will be on the first half of the year, 2021.
    Thanks again for your interest in Nebula products.  B)

    For the replacement on Draytek switch I will suggest GS1920-8HPv2, here is the link for your reference and please stay tune of USG Flex on cloud~?

    I personally don't go for any locally managed zyxel kit anymore, I have a huge pile of various USG's building up that have been replaced with Nebula NSG's.

    I much prefer the simplicity of the Nebula kit from an IT point of view as its far simpler to replace and configure for remote users, workplaces etc but the USG seems far superior in terms of specs, performance and throughput. Would be nice if we had the single point of management of Nebula with the features of USG.
