Models

FortiGate-VM is available with different CPU and RAM sizes and can be deployed on various private and public cloud platforms. The following table shows the models conventionally available to order, also known as bring your own license (BYOL) models. See Order types.

The v-series does not support VDOM by default. To run VDOM on v-models, you must purchase additional VDOM licenses. You can add and stack VDOMs up to the maximum supported number after initial deployment.

Generally there are RAM size restrictions to FortiGate BYOL licenses. However, these restrictions are not applicable to OCI deployments. Any RAM size with certain CPU models are allowed. Licenses are based on the number of CPUs only.

Previously, platform-specific models such as FortiGate for OCI with an OCI-specific orderable menu existed. However, the common model is now applicable to all supported platforms.

For information about each model's order information, capacity limits, and adding VDOM, see the FortiGate-VM datasheet.

The primary requirement for the provisioning of a virtual FortiGate may be the number of interfaces it can accommodate rather than its processing capabilities. In some cloud environments, the options with a high number of interfaces tend to have high numbers of vCPUs.
