The CloudGen Firewall can be deployed to the Google Cloud Platform to secure and connect your cloud resources. Cloud Integration also populates the Cloud Information element in the Barracuda Firewall Admin dashboard.
Deploy via Google Launcher
You can deploy the latest firmware version of the CloudGen Firewall directly from Google Launcher.
For more information, see How to Deploy the F-Series Firewall in the Google Cloud via Google Launcher.
Deploy via Command Line
The gcloud command in the Google Cloud SDK allows you to quickly deploy a CloudGen Firewall image in Google Cloud. Use the command line to deploy if you require a specific image that is no longer available in Google Launcher, or a multi-nic firewall used for segmentation in Google Cloud.
Deploy two CloudGen Firewalls in a High Availability Cluster in the Google Cloud
Deploy a CloudGen Firewall High Availability cluster in the Google Cloud to ensure that your GCE resources are always available. For the backend servers to always use the active firewall instance as the default gateway, the Google route table is rewritten each time a takeover event occurs. Incoming traffic can be directed to the active firewall by either the Google Network TCP Load Balancer or UDP Load Balancer.
For more information, see High Availability in Google Cloud.
Manually Upload an Image and Deploy
If you need to deploy a firmware version of the CloudGen Firewall that is not available through Google Launcher, you can manually upload and deploy the firewall images. The firewall images for each firmware version that is supported for Google Cloud is available in the Barracuda Download portal.

Accessing the Serial Console in Google Cloud
The Google Cloud Platform lets you enable and connect to the serial port of your firewall instance. This feature allows you to troubleshoot your CloudGen Firewall in case of a misconfiguration in an interactive, web-based serial console.
