VM-Series in Azure Marketplace charges

Some basic cost based questions here from a newbie:

 

After deploying Bundle-1 of the PAYG VM-300 series from the Azure Marketplace:

- if I "stop" the instance, I won't get Azure compute charge BUT will Palo Alto continue to charge me for the license or other misc charges?   [I understand storage charges will continue]

- will stopping the instance make all configs lost?

PAYG type licensing is not associated directly with Palo Alto Networks. That being saidyou will be charged hourly or annually depending on the type of license you use. But PAYG is listed as a consumption based licensing model so if your VM is powered off then there is no consumption. See the link below for information on PAYG and BYOL licensing.

Will the configs be lost if I were to stop the VM, leave it and start it sometime in the future?

Rule of thumb when it comes to firewalls is to always back up your configurations. But the answer is yes. The configuration should still be there.
