Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

Attention

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall version 8.0 is a cloud-only version. It is currently not available for on-premises deployments and can only be deployed in Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, or Google Cloud Platform public clouds.

Getting Started - Control Center for Google Cloud

  • Last updated on

The Barracuda Firewall Control Center for Google Cloud is available as a Bring Your Own License (BYOL) image from Google Launcher. Two models are available: the VCC610 supports two ranges and unlimited clusters, the VCC400 one range and one cluster. The Control Center can manage both on-premises hardware and virtual firewalls, as well as CloudGen Firewalls in the public cloud. It is not possible to use the Control Center in a high availability cluster.
