Transit VPC with P.A.

Does anyone have experience with a services/transit VPC at AWS?


Wondering specifically about experience with thoughput with the palo alto managing the transit traffic between the corporate office and multiple VPC's.

I did some tests with dual VM-Series firewalls in a services VPC running PAN-OS 7.1 last year and I got about 320 Mbps per firewall with iperf and 300 Mbps with httperf.  (The datasheet states 250 Mbps officially for IPsec.)  I haven't re-run the tests with PAN-OS 8.0 but according to the AWS specsheet, the VM-Series can do up to 3.5 Gbps now.
