I have to create APIM service for production use, so i am looking for features for high availability solutions

I have to create APIM service for production use, so i am looking for features to achieved high availability solutions with below features like:
Multi-region deployment,
Availability zones,
Self-hosted gateway,
Virtual Network (VNet) support,
Azure AD integration and Scale-out (units).

Above features are available in Premium but in Azure Pricing calculator i can see one additional Tier as "Gateway Tier" which i cannot see in azure portal while deploying APIM service.

So i have 2 questions:
1) Why i can't see Gateway Tier in Azure Portal while deploying APIM?
2) Can i get above mentioned features of Premium Tier in Gateway Tier too?

Please help on priority.

@GauravPandey-7647 These are only the supported tier listed here and the document list the different features available for different tiers. The Gateway is not the tier but the feature of APIM which is available for the Developer and the Premium tier which is charged in addition to your SKU based on your usage. I will pass the feedback to the pricing calculator team as I can see Self-hosted Gateways option is already populated while selecting the Developer and Premium tier.

Thanks @MayankBargali-MSFT for reply.
So , if i conclude from your above explanations. It means Gateway option coming in drop down of Pricing calculator is for Self hosted gateway , which already covered in Developer & Premium Tier. In short alone having Gateway Tier pricing doesn't make any sense.
