About FireCluster in WatchGuard Cloud

Applies To: Locally-managed Fireboxes

FireCluster is the high availability (HA) solution for WatchGuard Fireboxes. In WatchGuard Cloud, you can add a locally-managed FireCluster, initiate system actions, and view log messages.

Add or Remove a FireCluster

If you previously configured a FireCluster, you can add it to WatchGuard Cloud.

You can also Remove a FireCluster from WatchGuard Cloud.

Manage a FireCluster

You can initiate these system actions in WatchGuard Cloud:

To initiate FireCluster system actions in WatchGuard Cloud, cluster members must run Fireware v12.7.1 or higher (or v12.5.8 or higher for T10, T15, T30, T35, T50, M200 and M300 Fireboxes). To upgrade a cluster from lower Fireware versions, you must use Policy Manager or Fireware Web UI. After the upgrade, you can upgrade, reboot, and fail over the cluster in WatchGuard Cloud. For information about cluster upgrades in Policy Manager and Fireware Web UI, see Upgrade Fireware OS for a FireCluster.
