Palo Alto Networks VM-Series Scalability

Pradeep Kurra
Cloud Practice Engineer at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
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 »

It is very easy to scale. All you have to do is get access to the VM base and then spin it off into another virtual environment or send it into the cloud. This means that you now have a data center through Palo Alto. They have a new product called Prisma that allows you to create links between remote users working from different areas and use that to connect to the clouds in this infrastructure. It also allows you to get connectivity to that but not using a backhaul. Rather, you connect straight from wherever you are. In the places where we have deployed this solution, they have a couple of thousand users. 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 scalable but I cannot really comment on how much because we have not taken it to that level. We have between 450 and 500 users. 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 »

This is a scalable solution but it would be better if it had direct integration with Microsoft Azure. Currently, we have three administrators and more than 5,000 end-users through our public website. View full review »

It seems scalable as of now. In the future, as my traffic foes and with the new sites coming, we have to see how much there will be when the network becomes more demanding. Our clients are enterprise-sized. View full review »
