I have a question from a customer regarding the VM-Series.
My customer is interested in deploying a VM-Series appliance in the DC today but has a future requirement to migrate the protected application environment from the on-prem DC to public cloud.
Is it possible to migrate the fully configured and operational VM-Series appliance from the on-prem VMware hypervisor to a public cloud such as AWS simply by shutting it down and moving it across to the cloud provider with minimal changes such as to parameters like interfaces?

I'm interested in the Palo Alto virtual or VM-series appliance that would be broadly equivalent to the PA-5250. I realise the product selection is best made based on requirements such as sessions security rules, dynamic ip addresses, security zones, ipsec vpn tunnels but that information is not available just yet.
What I can say is that the PA-5250 in place today on my customer site absolutely meets all technical requirements and performance criteria. However, there is an urgent but non-technical compliance requirement to migrate to a virtual appliance so customer is interested in replacing with as like-for-like a virtual alternative as possible.
Also, is the PA-5250 currently end of life? I've checked online and it does not appear to be - only the PA-5020, PA-5050 and PA-5060 have published notifications. However, my customer seems to believe the PA-5250 is either currently end of life or approaching end of life so just wanted to double check.
