All features of the NextGen Firewall that are available in the worldwide Azure cloud are also available in the Azure Germany cloud. However, you must configure Azure PowerShell to work with the German Azure environment. The NextGen Firewall F and the NextGen Control Center can be deployed via user defined images. Since the Azure Marketplace is not available for Azure Germany, only BYOL images can be used. While the Azure Germany support both ASM and ARM deployment modes, the NextGen Firewall and Control Center is only supported in ARM deployment mode.
Using Azure PowerShell with Azure Germany
Use Azure PowerShell version 3.0.0 or higher to be able to pass the Azure Germany environment to the Login-AzureRmAccount commandlet. A pop-up window opens and prompts for your username and password.
Login-AzureRmAccount -EnvironmentName AzureGermanCloud
Deploying on Azure Germany using Azure Resource Manager
The Barracuda NextGen Firewall and Control Center are deployed from the BYOL disk image downloaded from the Barracuda download portal. User defined images cannot be deployed via the web portal. Only PowerShell or Azure templates are supported.
- Download the firewall or Control Center disk image from the Barracuda Download Portal.
- Configure Azure PowerShell to use Azure Germany as its environment.
- Upload the disk image to a storage account. For more information, see How to Upload Azure VHD Images for User Defined Images using ARM.
- Deploy the firewall or Control Center using the uploaded disk image as a user defined image via either Azure Templates or PowerShell script. For more information, see How to Deploy an F-Series Firewall via Azure Templates, How to Deploy an F-Series Firewall in Microsoft Azure using PowerShell and ARM or How to Configure a High Availability Cluster in Azure using PowerShell and ARM.
