CN-Series Prerequisites

Review the system requirements for deploying the CN-Series within a cluster.

System Requirements for the Kubernetes Cluster

System requirements for the cluster in which you are deploying the CN-Series firewall.
While the CPU, memory and disk storage will depend on your needs, here are some guidelines:
Resource
CN-MGMT (StatefulSet Pod for Fault Tolerance)
CN-NGFW (DaemonSet Pod)
Memory (min)
2Gi

Memory (max)
4Gi
2.5Gi

For 5G-Native Security, the guidelines are:
Resource
CN-MGMT (StatefulSet Pod for Fault Tolerance)
CN-NGFW (DaemonSet Pod)

16Gi

System Requirements for On-Premises Kubernetes Deployments

Review the following prerequisites for your on-premises deployments:
  • Ensure that the container images are accessible to all nodes in the Kubernetes cluster.
  • Set up a persistent volume within the cluster for both the CN-MGMT pods. Because the CN-MGMT pods are deployed as a StatefulSet, which actively manage the CN-NGFW pods, both instances must have access to the persistent volume.
