HA Port and Processor Support

Review the high availability (HA) ports and processor functionality supported on Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls.
The following table identifies which Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls can support the HA ports and processor functionality you require in your network.
Additionally, some firewall models and PA-7000 Series firewall cards include an offload processor: a Content Engine (CE) for accelerating signature matches or a Crypto Accelerator (CA) for accelerating SSL processing—some support one or the other but not both simultaneously.
