Hi @Chris_Hrachowy 

The CloudGuard cloud security solution delivers advanced threat protection to private or public cloud infrastructures. It controls and manages the security in both the physical and virtual environments with one unified management solution. With trusted APIs, the CloudGuard Controller connects to the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) and integrates the virtual cloud environment with Check Point Security Gateways. The CloudGuard Controller automatically updates the security policy on security logs. It updates GUI, API, and security logs with new and changed appliances, computers, devices, and addresses.

Check Point Security Gateways run on virtual machines. Deploy the gateway in the public and private cloud for perimeter and lateral protection, and industry-leading advanced threat prevention security. The CloudGuard Gateways integrate seamlessly with SDN solutions, such as VMware vCenter, VMware NSX, Cisco ACI and Cisco ISE.

The CloudGuard Controller integrates with these virtual cloud environments:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS) 
  • Microsoft Azure 
  • Cisco ACI 
  • Cisco ISE 
  • Google Cloud Platform (GCP) 
  • Nuage Networks VSP 
  • OpenStack 
  • VMware vCenter 
  • VMware NSX

Do I need a normal version (sk144293 - Check Point R80.30 ) or the VE version (sk158292 - CloudGuard for Private Cloud images) on a ESXi 6.5?

We have installed R80.30 form sk144293 and not the private cloud version. What's the difference here?

Yes, that is an interesting question.

We have not installed the cloud guard ESXi version either. Could that cause a problem?

When installing 80.40 on vmware should i define the cluster as Open Server or cloudguard for NSX.
The cluster is not a part of any automation.

Would that make any difference?

The difference is CloudGuard service, which allows GWs to be part of the SDDC orchestration. If you do not need that, use regular GW. If you do, go CloudGuard.
