Panorama HA (Active/Standby) Deployment in Azure

Hello

 

Our company has opted to deploy Panorama and Palo Alto Firewalls in our Azure. I am planning to deploy Panorama in HA (Active/Standby) in Panorama mode in our Azure. I have some questions and hoping you guys can help me

 

I am using the below System Requirements

 

System Disk:  1 x 256 GB (Premium SSD)

CPU’s:  16

Memory: 64 GB

Logging Disks: 2TB

Azure VM Instance: D16s v4

 

1. Is there minimum PAN-OS Version requirement for the deployment in Azure?

2. How effective is the Active/Standby HA in the Azure?

3. What is the ideal Azure VM instance to deploy the Panorama?

Hi Ravindra,

 

it is hard to say what are the requirements for the Panorama in Azure, it is also important to know what are the use case. 

When you logs/sec are lower the 10,000 and you didnt want to manage more then 500 Devices then are the min requirements:

  • 16 CPUs
  • 32 GM memory
  • 4x2TB Logging disks (or lower 2x2TB is also enough)

Then you can use a DS5_v2 vm instance type

Details are here https://docs.paloaltonetworks.com/panorama/9-1/panorama-admin/set-up-panorama/set-up-the-panorama-vi...

 

1. there is no version requirements for Panorama in Azure it is again depends what are you trying to archive here but i use in the past the Version 9.1.4

 

2. I have already a lab running in Azure Panorama HA and i can't complain. It works really stable for me.

 

I hope i could help.

 

Regards,

Torsten
