Instance type support

FortiGate supports the following instance types on Azure.

Supported instances on the Azure marketplace listing may change without notice and may vary between bring your own license (BYOL) and pay as you go (PAYG). Instance types of the A- and D-series no longer appear as deployable instances at the time you install the FortiGate virtual machine (VM) on the marketplace launcher. FortiGate supports compute optimized instances (F-series, Fs-series, and Fsv2-series) and general purpose instances (Dv2-series and DSv2-series).

For up-to-date information on each instance type, see the following links:
