Thank you for the link to that document. That is interesting information that I haven't seen publicly available before. It seems in some cases the VM-700 is able to achieve over 10G of throughput. Why then doesn't PAN advertise or officially support this? We're running into educational institutions with 10G requirements. Fortinet does advertise a solution, although with twice the required vm-700 vcpus (32 vs 16). On paper, this put us at an immediate disadvantage. We operate our own private cloud and we substantially tune for throughput whenever possible. So my question is less concerned with public cloud and I understand the issues there.
