System requirements

FortiWeb-VM supports the following hypervisor versions:

  • OpenStack Queens 17.0.5; OpenStack deployment does not support True Transparent Proxy or Transparent Inspection operation modes.

For best performance in hypervisor deployments, install FortiWeb-VM on a “bare metal” (type 1) hypervisor. Hypervisors that are installed as applications on top of a general purpose operating system (Windows, Mac OS X or Linux) host have fewer computing resources available due to the host OS’s own overhead.

To ensure high performance, it's recommended to deploy FortiWeb on the machine types with minimum 2 vCPUs, and memory size larger than 4 GB.

For hypervisor deployments, hardware-assisted virtualization (Intel VT or AMD-V) must be enabled in the BIOS. You must also have the VM environment client, such as VMware vSphere Client, installed on a management computer. (A management computer is a desktop or a laptop that you use to deploy and manage your virtual machines.)
