I am planning to replace my company's firewalls with Palo alto instead of Checkpoint however I need try it out in a lab or something before I provide further information to my management team, Is there a way I can get a vmware image to try it out on Esxi,???

we just replaced out firewall last week by a PaloAlto system.
I did not hear of a VM image for testing before.
I know that there is a possible guest GUI login available to a demo system to see how the GUI looks like.
Also we were asked if we would like to have a real system for testing for e.g. 2-4 weeks.
-> The system will get data traffic via e.g. port mirroring a firewall port or can be switched transparently into a live wire
-> You can then use the system to see how the FW administration and the data inspection works

The best method for obtaining either a physical or virtual unit for testing things would be contact a reseller or contact your PAN SE and discuss it with them. The VM is only available normally to those who have purchased it.

Contact your local reseller/dealer and ask - in most cases, they have loan units you can stick in in virtual wire mode and observe without distracting from your existing configuration.
Helped me make the decision the first time I saw them, that's for sure!
