Licensing quesion / issue with CSP

We have a couple of PA3050 devices in situ and are planning to migrate many of our workloads into Azure.  We would like to deploy a VM-300 in Azure and keep costs as low as possible with the ability to flex up/down.  The PAYG model seems the option for this but we have been told this is not available to us as we are using a CSP.  Are there any other options avaialble to make the Palo Alto a viable option for us in Azure?  ideally we would want to go PAYG initially and once the migration completes review incurred costs, if PAYG is looking expensive the we could look to BYOL, if we were to do this could we migrate our 3050 licensing over to the VM-300 in Azure?

 

Thanks

Ryan,

 

This is something you will definitely need to discuss with your account team. Physical firewalls and VM-Series firewalls have different license types so you will not be able to take a Physical auth code and apply it to a VM-Series. The account team will have a better understanding of the back end mechanics and what approach will be better suited for your scenario.
