Standard and High-Performance VPN Gateway SKUs will be retired on 30 September 2025

Published date: December 01, 2023

Because of the retirement of Basic IP, which Standard and High-Performance SKUs only accept, we will retire these SKUs on 30 September 2025. Starting 1 December 2023, you will no longer be able to create a new gateway with these SKUs. 

Recommended action: Post December 2024, you will be able to upgrade your Standard/High-Performance gateway SKU to one of the other VPN Gateway SKUs available. 

There are no price changes for migrating Standard (VPNGw1) and High-Performance (VPNGw2). As a benefit, the performance improvement after migrating Standard is 6.5x and High Performance is 5x respectively.

If you do not upgrade your gateway by August 2025, your gateway will be automatically upgraded to VPNGw1AZ (Standard) or VPNGw2AZ (High-Performance) after 30 September 2025.
