VM-Series High Availability on ESXi?

L0 Member

Hi there, I am really new in network virtualization. I want to ask about high availability in Palo Alto VM-Series. We are going to buy two VM-200 (1 for Internal, 1 for External) and will install it on ESXi. I want ask for your advice.

1.Should I buy another two VM-200 for the redudancy?

2.or let the vSphere (HA or FT, I don't know which one should I use) handle the failover?

3.... your advice ...

What do you think?

It's recommended to be using redundant firewalls in your scenario.


Here is a good article using the firewalls in L3 mode in ESXi.
