Deploy PA firewall HA in different availability zone in Azure

L0 Member

Hi all


Understand PA HA deployment supported since PAN-OS 9.0, so firewall pair can be deployed in the availability set so they are in different hardware cluster in Azure. But may I know anyone tried to form the HA in different availability zone in the same Azure region? Support or not?


Best regards

We recommend deploying firewalls in separate AZs or at least put them into an Availability Set in Azure.  HA mode is supported as well but not typically recommended.  The load balancer method is recommended.  You can see both setups in our reference architecture guide.
