VM-300 in Azure sizing and resiliency

L1 Bithead

Hi All, im trying to spec up a resilient HA solution for the VM-300 series PAYG bundle 1 option within azure, and just need the following clarified:-

- if i were to purchase the VM-300 option 1 bundle (https://azuremarketplace.microsoft.com/en-us/marketplace/apps/paloaltonetworks.vmseries-ngfw?tab=Pla...) does this mean i also need to purchase virtual machines for them to run on within azure, or does the bundle include VMs to run on

-if i need to purchase VMs should i go for the linux standard VM builds, or memory optimised, or CPU optimised


- regarding HA and resiliency, will i need to purchase 2 x VM-300 firewalls with option 1 bundle in order to provide HA i.e. in the event one VM-300 fails or needs restarting i need a way to ensure traffic keeps flowing, im getting confused as it appears there is some option for Availability sets within Azure that perform some similar function? or is it that i would have to purchase 2 VM-300s and place them in this availability set to achieve this.


I think i've gone a bit documentation blind, and just need a bit of a steer.


many thanks
