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?

Thanks!

Re: Management in Azure, 1400 series clusters

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

To manage 25 clusters of 1400 appliances is no big deal for a CP SMS, i would assume that needs for logging and SmartEvent/Reporter will use most ressources.
