Hello Check Point community,

I really interest sizing concept, especially for virtual infrastructure environment based on VMware. Unfortunately I haven't access to the sizing tool for analyze suitable HW models then grab from them technical characteristics and prepare the same one on VMware. For me It need to calculate adequate costs for licensing and subscription NGTP packet, cause as I understand more cores->more money :-). And I need to find out better balance between them.

interest it firewall requirements, we will use:

1.blades: Firewall, Identity Awareness, Application Control, URL Filtering, Anti-Virus, Anti-Bot.

2.Distributed deployment model

3.VMware infrastructure.

4.No clustering


For this solution we are really interest parameters (CPU, Memory, Disk Space) which better to put (for firewall only, SMS is centralize and already installed):

Option 1: Less that 50 users

Option 2: Less that 100 users

Option 3: Less that 200 users

Option 4: less than 400 users.


Check point gateways we are use only as access this users to Internet and nothing more.

Really appreciated if you share some recommendations/ideas for all four options.


I already investigated CP documentation with minimum parameters as well: TAGS ARE REQUIRED --> Check Point Software Technologies: Download Center
