Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Scalability

Christian Amaya
Support Engineer & IT Professional at SISAP
The Series 2000 version of Palo Alto were somewhat big for small or medium customers. They did not have a middle box. In the newer version (3850s), all of them are scalable. They fit better into medium or small businesses, so it is easy for us. E.g, if we have a VMware 500 appliance, we can upgrade it to a 100. They have improved in this way. View full review »

We picked the PA-3050s. They can handle a lot of traffic, so we are nowhere near our limits on it. We are not really touching its full capacity at the moment. View full review »

You already can scale it if you put it in Auto Scaling groups. If you put it in a load balancer, it should already be able to scale. We put our Palo Altos in the public VPC, then we have contractors come over the Internet and VPN into the Palo Altos to get into the AWS environment. View full review »

One of the great features that we liked and selected it was its scalability. We can autoscale and put it in Auto Scaling groups, which is very useful. View full review »

It is definitely scalable. We have about 100 users with about 200 to 300 instances on the cloud that we protect. View full review »

We're still learning about the scalability. We have run into some issues with scaling and limitations associated with some of the configurations. However, it is a solution that we have been happy with overall. View full review »

We are happy with the scalability. We just started migrating to the cloud. Thus, we are slowly adding more volume to it. Maybe next year, we should know how it is scaling in the cloud. View full review »

The limit of the product is based on resources that we can obtain from AWS. We have approximately 3500 users and 200 servers leveraging the Palo Alto product. View full review »
