1 Requires deployment of at least one unit in two or more regions.

2 Actual throughput is affected by many factors including the number and rate of concurrent client connections, the kind and number of configured policies, payload sizes and backend API performance. The numbers presented in the table were obtained by testing with 1000 concurrent persistent client secure HTTP connections, minimal payload sizes, no policies configured, and a low latency backend API.

3 Monthly free grant of 1 million requests per Azure subscription.

4 Bring your own Redis-compatible cache, e.g. Azure Redis Cache.

5 Available for gateway only. Limit of 20 domain names per instance. Call support to add more.
