Panorama supports an extensible plugin architecture.
The Panorama extensible plugin architecture enables
support for third-party integration plugins, such as VMware NSX,
and other Palo Alto Networks products, such as the GlobalProtect
cloud service. With this modular architecture, you can take advantage
of new capabilities without waiting for a new PAN-OS version.
You can also configure the VM-Series plugin from Panorama. The
VM-Series plugin is a single plugin that enables integration with
public cloud environments such as Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Azure,
AWS and private cloud hypervisors such as KVM, ESXi and others.
The VM-Series plugin enables you to publish metrics from VM-Series
firewalls deployed in public clouds. You can use Panorama to configure the
VM-Series plugin settings for public clouds and push your configuration
to your managed firewalls.
For plugin installations required on both Panorama and
managed firewalls, the plugin version installed on Panorama must
be equal to or higher than the plugin version installed on managed
