Azure region support can mean one of the following:
- FortiGate-VM is available for purchase in a specific region
- You can deploy FortiGate-VM on the data center located in the chosen region within the Azure portal. They are the “locations.”
- You can deploy FortiGate-VM on "regional" Azure, such as in China, Germany, and U.S. Gov. Each has its own URL domain. FortiOS 6.0.2 and later versions support this.
FortiGate-VM is available for purchase in all regions where Azure is commercially available. See the Azure Purchase FAQ.
In terms of the location where FortiGate-VM is deployed, ensure that quota is available. Some limits, such as virtual machine (VM) cores, exist at a regional level. For more detail, see Azure subscription and service limits, quotas, and constraints. You can also request that Microsoft increase VM cores if necessary, as explained at Resource Manager vCPU quota increase requests. Choose the instance types supported to deploy FortiGate (Instance type support).
