In a similar vain as Mr. Scoma's inquiry - we are nearing the end of the subscription for our Barracuda web-filter.  

We have for the most part been pleased with it but are pricing is a bit steep on the renewal.  Apparently you can either buy more years (definitions and hardware replacement) on the same piece of hardware or buy a whole new device with definitions/hardware replacement.  

For those who have deployed Barracuda's equipment or those who are pleased with their existing web-filter I would be interested in hearing how you have deployed it with your contract arrangements.  Please keep in mind we are a 600 student school so SMB offerings would be more applicable.

Thank you in advance!
