Set Up the Panorama Virtual Appliance

The Panorama virtual appliance enables you to use your existing VMware virtual infrastructure to centrally manage and monitor Palo Alto Networks firewalls and Dedicated Log Collectors. You can install the virtual appliance on an ESXi server, Alibaba Cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS), AWS GovCloud, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), KVM, Hyper-V, or in vCloud Air. In addition to or instead of deploying Dedicated Log Collectors, you can forward firewall logs directly to the Panorama virtual appliance. For greater log storage capacity and faster reporting, you have the option to switch the virtual appliance from Legacy mode to Panorama mode and configure a local Log Collector. For more details about the Panorama virtual appliance and its modes, see Panorama Models.
These topics assume you are familiar with the public and private hypervisor products required to create the virtual appliance, and don’t cover any related concepts or terminology.
