Barracuda CloudGen WAN

Virtual Systems (VTx) Deployment

  • Last updated on

Barracuda CloudGen WAN appliances are available as images for the most common hypervisors.

In order to guarantee optimal performance, Barracuda Networks highly recommends that the CPU of your hypervisor supports the AES-NI instruction set. However, CloudGen WAN units also work on hypervisors with CPUs that do not support the AES-NI instruction set, though the units are slower.

Step 1. Complete Your Data in the VM Activation Form

This step is necessary only for the first time you use a virtual machine image. 

  1. Go to and log in with your existing Barracuda Cloud Control account.
  2. Click SETTINGS.
  3. Click VM Activation.
  4. The VM Activation blade opens. Specify values for the following:
    • First Name Enter your first name.  
    • Last Name Enter your last name.
    • Email Address Enter your email address.
    • Phone Number – Enter your phone number.
    • Company Name – Enter your company name.
    • Address Line 1 – Enter your address. 
    • City – Enter your city name.
    • State – Enter your state name.
    • Country Select your country from the drop-down menu.
    • ZIP/Postal Code Enter your ZIP/postal code.
  5. Click SAVE.

Step 2. Deploy the Virtual Machine Image on Your Hypervisor

If the Internet connection of the virtual appliance is secured by a firewall, verify that SSL Inspection is disabled.

  1. Go to and download the image for your hypervisor.
  2. Deploy the image on your hypervisor. For more information, see How to Deploy a CloudGen WAN VTx on Hyper-VHow to Deploy a CloudGen WAN VTx on KVM and How to Deploy a CloudGen WAN VTx OVA on VMware Hypervisors.
