Did you know that you can find use cases for our products on our Technical Documentation portal? Our use case examples provide realistic scenarios and/or topologies that display a complete start to finish configuration. Besides showcasing the primary capabilities of the product, they highlight features that may be overlooked or that complement each other.

In this post, we share 3 use cases for Panorama.

This use case is based on a scenario where you want to use Panorama in a high availability configuration to manage a dozen firewalls on your network: you have six firewalls deployed across six branch offices, a pair of firewalls in a high availability configuration at each of two datacenters, and a firewall in each of the two regional head offices.

To read more about the workflow for designing a central management strategy for this scenario, see Use Case: Configure Firewalls Using Panorama.
