The VM-Series Next Generation Firewalls (NGFW) allow
you to migrate your business-critical applications to the cloud
and protect the increased public cloud footprint from threats, data
loss, and business disruption by:
Offering unmatched application
visibility and precise control.
Preventing threats from moving laterally between workloads and
stopping data exfiltration.
Eliminating security-induced application development bottlenecks
with automation and centralized management.

System Requirements for VM-Series Firewall on IBM Cloud
To deploy a VM-Series firewall on an IBM Cloud instance,
you must choose a machine type that supports the VM-Series
System Requirements for your license.
Refer to the table below for the minimum recommended predefined
standard machine types.
Minimum Recommended Predefined Machine Types
You can choose a higher performing machine type or create your
own custom machine type, if the resource requirements are compatible
with your VM-Series firewall license. A single IBM Cloud instance
supports up to five network interfaces. For more information on
machine types, see Instance Profiles.
