The Palo Alto Networks VM-Series features three virtualized next-generation firewall models – the VM-100, VM-200, and VM-300. These platforms are supported on the VMware ESXi 4.1 and ESXi 5.0 platforms. 2, 4, or 8 CPU cores on your virtualized server platforms can be assigned for next-generation firewall processing.
With 4 CPU cores running, the VM-Series delivers up to 1 Gbps firewall throughput with App-ID enabled. To ensure that management is accessible to you during heavy traffic, the data and control plane are separated. In addition, our unique single-pass software architecture processes functions in a single pass to reduce latency.
