Palo Alto Networks VM Series
The Palo Alto Networks VM-Series features three virtualized next-generation firewall models – the VM-100, VM-200, and VM-300. These platforms are supported on the VMware ESXi 4.1, 5.0 and 5.5 platforms, and the Citrix NetScaler SDX 11500 and 17550 Series.
You can deploy the VM-Series on ESXi servers in virtualized and for cloud environments for East West traffic inspection. The VM-Series on Citrix NetScaler consolidates security and application delivery controller capabilities for multi-tenant (business unit, application owner, service provider customer) deployments or as a complete solution for Citrix XenApp XenDesktop deployments.
2, 4, or 8 CPU cores on your virtualized server platforms can be assigned for next-generation firewall processing. With 4 CPU cores running, the VM-Series delivers up to 1 Gbps firewall throughput with App-ID enabled. To ensure that management is accessible to you during heavy traffic, the data and control plane are separated. In addition, our unique single-pass software architecture processes functions in a single pass to reduce latency.
VM-Series on the ESXi servers supports 10 virtual network interfaces while VM-Series on the Citrix NetScaler SDX supports 24 virtual network interfaces.
The VM-Series runs PAN-OSTM, a security-specific operating system that:
Our PAN-OS next-generation firewall capabilities, such as Dynamic Address Groups and VM-Monitoring, allow you to tie your security policies to virtual machine adds, moves and changes, and to create security policies that instantly sync with virtual workload creation.
