How to Autoprovision a NetScaler VPX Instance on OpenStack Nova


The on-demand consumption model has become a de facto standard in cloud computing. To support this model in the OpenStack cloud environment, NetScaler MAS supports on-demand autoprovisioning of NetScaler VPX instances on OpenStack Nova. The provisioned instances are used to load balance (including SSL and content switching functionality) the applications that are deployed in OpenStack clouds or outside OpenStack Cloud.

For an example, if a cloud service provider has built a cloud using OpenStack and providing customers with on-demand computing, storage, and networking services, the networking services can include on-demand allocation of NetScaler instances to customers who are deploying applications in or outside the OpenStack Cloud. Using NetScalers VPX instances that are provisioned on OpenStack Nova leverages the existing OpenStack infrastructure.
