Deploying a FortiAnalyzer Cloud instance

This section explains how to deploy FortiAnalyzer Cloud. You can select a region, and then deploy the instance of FortiAnalyzer Cloud Cloud to the region.

A primary FortiCloud account is required to deploy FortiAnalyzer Cloud. A primary FortiCloud account can invite other users to launch FortiAnalyzer Cloud as sub users. See Adding a secondary account.

When deploying FortiAnalyzer Cloud to receive logs from non-FortiGate devices, such as FortiClient, a storage add-on license is also required.

Only one FortiAnalyzer Cloud instance can be created per FortiCloud account.

Note

Although FortiAnalyzer Cloud 7.0.x is available for customers to use, FortiAnalyzer Cloud 6.4 is deployed by default, and customers can choose whether to upgrade firmware to version 7.0.x.
