Hi Barracuda-Team,


could you please keep older NG-Versions in the Azure Cloud available for installation, like other vendors also do for their installation images? Currently older versions (e.g. 6.0) is no longer available since the release of 6.1.


I understand, that 6.1 integrates better in the the Azure Cloud that 6.0 does, but as there are limitations when integrating newer Firmware releases (6.1) into older customer management clusters (e.g. 5.4), being forced to use the newest Firmware release does cause additional installation and managment overhead.


Best Regards,

Hi Gerhard,

thank you for your input. This is something we are currently investigating, we will try to provide images for previous NG Firewall versions for Azure soon.

In the meantime, you can get VHD images for older Azure releases from our support. For AWS, it's already possible to select the version during deployment:

Hope this answer is helpful for you.

Hi Tobias,


thank you for the answer - asking support for the Azure vhd-Image worked, although I had to download more the 4 GB (and need to upload that again into Azure).
