Organizations are speeding up workload migration to Azure to take advantage of the growing set of innovative cloud services, scale, and economic benefits of the public cloud. Applications migration to the cloud consequently increases the network traffic throughput demand. This puts pressure on network elements and more specifically on Azure Firewall which is in the critical path of most network traffic. Currently, Azure Firewall supports 30 Gbps which is sufficient to meet current throughput demands for many of our customers. However, we are seeing some organizations require even more throughput and towards this, we are announcing new Azure Firewall capabilities as well as updates for January 2022:
