Cloud Orchestration

FortiManager supports the ability to orchestrate the deployment of FortiGate autoscaling groups (ASG) on Amazon Web Services (AWS). This allows administrators to use FortiManager as a single-pane to deploy all resources required to implement FortiGate ASG in the public cloud.

You can deploy cloud orchestration on FortiManager for the following deployment types:

  • FortiGate ASG on AWS for existing virtual private clouds.
  • FortiGate ASG on AWS for new virtual private clouds.
  • FortiGate ASG on AWS for new virtual private clouds with a transit gateway (TGW).
To deploy cloud orchestration with FortiManager:
  1. Configure a cloud connector to connect to the AWS server. See Creating cloud connectors.
  2. Configure a cloud deployment template to configure the VPC and FortiGate ASG settings. See Creating cloud deployment templates.
  3. Create a new cloud orchestration and deploy it to the public cloud. See Deploying cloud orchestration.

Once created, cloud connectors, deployment templates, and cloud orchestrations can be cloned, edited and deleted.
