What is Nebula Cloud Monitoring Mode?

As your networks migrate towards a Nebula Cloud environment, it is important to simultaneously manage both on-cloud and on-prem devices. For example, upgrading the firmware of multiple devices can be a headache for resellers who manage multiple on-cloud and on-prem firewalls. Now Nebula provides a centralized platform for managing their devices and licenses by Cloud Monitoring Mode.

Nebula Cloud Monitoring Mode supports firmware upgrade operations, remote configurator*1, and device configuration backup/restoration*1. Gain site-wide visibility into the status of your Nebula-managed devices and licenses in one place with Nebula Control Center.

*: Support models: USG FLEX, ATP, and USG20(W)-VPN, USG FLEX H series (available in Q4 2023) operated in on-prem mode. *1: Access remote GUI, Backup and restore firewall configurations require Nebula Pro Pack.
