I have this architecture (without the firewall). I bought a Watchguard M570 as Firewall to add it in my network. My Question is : Could i use my watchguard and connect this one to my 2 LoadBlancers and route each one to its network as i draw in the picture ? enter image description here

Sure. You can use policy-based routing (by source address) to connect each LAN side to its own load balancer.

You'd be more flexible though if you connected the WAN links to the Watchguard directly and balanced everything there.

  • Do you think, i can aggregate the 2 Links in the wathchguard m570. I tooked a look in the datasheets but i didnt find any think about its limits concerning making load balancing

  • I'm not familiar with Watchguards, but load balancing is just a matter of stateful policy-based routing, so whether one or more WAN links is used shouldn't matter much and the same limits should apply.
