Azure accelerated networking

Question asked by Constantine Welling on Jun 6, 2018

I'm running R80.10 gateways and a management server in Azure. However, gateway network throughput capacity is quite low (around 1 Gbps) despite we are using DS4_V2 VM. 1 Gbps is unlikely sufficient for  any medium to large size cloud data center.  Microsoft claims it provides up to 6 Gbps network throughput capacity for DS4_V2 VM.  Some time ago Microsoft announced accelerated networking feature and made it available for Linux and Windows VMs. They suggested we redeploy our gateways with accelerated networking enabled as it allows to increase network throughput up to 30 Gbps.

Does anyone know if R80.10 supports Azure accelerated networking or will support in near future?

Is there any other ideas on how to increase Check Point gateway network throughput?

 

 

Thanks
