VM-Series on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Performance and Capacity

Many factors—such as the shared tenancy of a public cloud environment, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) instance shape — can impact performance. The performance and capacities listed below have been generated using the indicated Oracle Cloud instance shape, support for DPDK, and the following test conditions:
  • The VM-Series is deployed on Oracle Cloud as a firewall between clients and servers in the same region. Throughput is measured based on bidirectional traffic sent and received by the VM-Series.
  • Firewall throughput is measured with App-ID™ and User-ID™ technology features enabled, utilizing 64 KB HTTP transactions.
  • Threat Prevention throughput is measured with App-ID, User-ID, IPS, antivirus, and anti-spyware features enabled, utilizing 64 KB HTTP transactions.
  • Connections per second are measured with 1 byte HTTP transactions.
We recommend additional testing within your environment to ensure your performance and capacity requirements are met. For a complete listing of all VM-Series features and capacities, please see compare VM-Series firewalls.
