Azure CloudGuard R77.30 vs R80.10

Hi All,

we have an on prem R77.30 Management server and are looking to deploy a CloudGuard cluster in Azure.

Now as we know, i either need to upgrade the mgnt server to r80.10 and deploy r80.10 cluster in Azure or leave the Mgnt Server as is, and deploy r77.30 ClouGuard in Azure.


if i remember correctly, R77.30 Mgnt cannot support a multicore firewall in Azure due to licensing restrictions ?  for vsec flexible central licensing, i need r80.10. Due to some limitations, we cannot upgrade the Mgnt to R80.10.


is there a guide to BYOL for Mgnt and CloudGuard  firewalls  licensing in Azure ? 


Also, what are the benefits or drawbacks of deploying R77.30 in Azure as  opposed to R80.10 CloudGuards ?

Thanks in advance.
