Management in Azure, 1400 series clusters
We have a customer that is interested in managing 25 clusters of 1400 series gateways from an IaaS manager in Azure. Meaning, a cloud based manager, managing physical gateway clusters. Is this feasible?
Also, the discussion turned to sizing for the VM in azure, is there an SK to reflect good sizing practices?
You can run security management in Azure, yes.
As a starting point, you can look at the datasheet for the Smart-1 appliances and choose the virtual appliance size that most closely matches the Smart-1 5050 (which handles 50 gateways): https://www.checkpoint.com/downloads/products/smart-1-security-management-platform-datasheet.pdf
