Palo Alto hardware without license limits

L1 Bithead

Yes, I already know without license i don't get the following but i want know about like VPN, firewall rules and etc.. limits

1. Security profiles (Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, URL Filtering, Wildfire) will not work

2. Clientless GlobalProtect, HIP will not work

3. All the updates will not work (software and dynamic)


I know the virtual firewall limits the firewall function but I was wondering if i buy the physical hardware does it limit the firewall function?
Firewall throughput, firewall rules, site to site VPN, VRF and etc...

Yes, the hardware should be sized with throughput in mind. Personally even if I dont plan on enabling all the features, i use the smallest number as my baseline. This way there is room for growth and if you implement the features down the road, you should have the hardware to support it.


Hope that makes sense.

As long as you're talking about a physical hardware appliance instead of a virtual appliance, there is no artificial limit placed on throughput or anything like that simply because it isn't licensed. You'll have access to the full platform limit capabilities of the hardware that you purchase outside of the licensed software features that you listed.
