Firewall and Panorama - live update design an architecture

I wanted to get a consensus from the community how do you design the firewall architecture to procure updates on the hourly, quarter hourly frequency nessistated by Next Gen firewalls. 


Do you deploy a bastion host which panorama can reach out and get the updates and trickle them down on a schedule?


Do you provide in dataplane (edge firewall) upgrade capabilities thru security rules for firewalls, as well as let Panorama assist?


Personally I rely on both, as I have had several issues with panorama syncing or loosing connection with adopted management device in device groups.
