+  <title>External Guest Firewall Integration for Juniper SRX (Optional)</title>
+  <note>
+    <para>Available only for guests using advanced networking.</para>
+  </note>
+  <para>&PRODUCT; provides for direct management of the Juniper SRX series of firewalls. This
+    enables &PRODUCT; to establish static NAT mappings from public IPs to guest VMs, and to use
+    the Juniper device in place of the virtual router for firewall services. You can have one or
+    more Juniper SRX per zone. This feature is optional. If Juniper integration is not provisioned,
+    &PRODUCT; will use the virtual router for these services.</para>
+  <para>The Juniper SRX can optionally be used in conjunction with an external load balancer.
+    External Network elements can be deployed in a side-by-side or inline configuration.</para>

+  <para>&PRODUCT; requires the Juniper to be configured as follows:</para>

+  <orderedlist>
+    <listitem>
+      <para>Install your SRX appliance according to the vendor's instructions.</para>

+    <listitem>
+      <para>Connect one interface to the management network and one interface to the public network.
+        Alternatively, you can connect the same interface to both networks and a use a VLAN for the
+        public network.</para>

+    <listitem>
+      <para>Make sure "vlan-tagging" is enabled on the private interface.</para>
+    </listitem>
+    <listitem>
+      <para>Record the public and private interface names. If you used a VLAN for the public
+        interface, add a ".[VLAN TAG]" after the interface name. For example, if you are using
+        ge-0/0/3 for your public interface and VLAN tag 301, your public interface name would be
+        "ge-0/0/3.301". Your private interface name should always be untagged because the
+        &PRODUCT; software automatically creates tagged logical interfaces.</para>
+    </listitem>
+    <listitem>
+      <para>Create a public security zone and a private security zone. By default, these will
+        already exist and will be called "untrust" and "trust". Add the public interface to the

+          <para>a. Create an incoming firewall filter and an outgoing firewall filter. These filters
+            should be the same names as your public security zone name and private security zone
+            name respectively. The filters should be set to be "interface-specific". For example,
+            here is the configuration where the public zone is "untrust" and the private zone is
+            "trust":</para>

+	<para>
+		<emphasis role="bold">Multiple Hypervisor Support</emphasis>
+	</para>
+	<para>
+        &PRODUCT; works with a variety of hypervisors, and a single cloud deployment can contain multiple hypervisor implementations. The current release of &PRODUCT; supports pre-packaged enterprise solutions like Citrix XenServer and VMware vSphere, as well as KVM or Xen running on Ubuntu or CentOS. 
+    </para>
+	<para>
+		<emphasis role="bold">Massively Scalable Infrastructure Management</emphasis>
+	</para>
+	<para>
+		&PRODUCT; can manage tens of thousands of servers installed in multiple geographically distributed datacenters. The centralized management server scales linearly, eliminating the need for intermediate cluster-level management servers. No single component failure can cause cloud-wide outage. Periodic maintenance of the management server can be performed without affecting the functioning of virtual machines running in the cloud.
+	</para>
+	<para>
+		<emphasis role="bold">Automatic Configuration Management</emphasis>
+	</para>
+	<para>&PRODUCT; automatically configures each guest virtual machine’s networking and storage settings.
+	</para>
+	<para>&PRODUCT; internally manages a pool of virtual appliances to support the cloud itself. These appliances offer services such as firewalling, routing, DHCP, VPN access, console proxy, storage access, and storage replication. The extensive use of virtual appliances simplifies the installation, configuration, and ongoing management of a cloud deployment.
+	</para>
+	<para>
+		<emphasis role="bold">Graphical User Interface</emphasis>
+	</para>
+	<para>&PRODUCT; offers an administrator's Web interface, used for provisioning and managing the cloud, as well as an end-user's Web interface, used for running VMs and managing VM templates. The UI can be customized to reflect the desired service provider or enterprise look and feel.
+	</para>
+	<para>
+		<emphasis role="bold">API and Extensibility</emphasis>
+	</para>
+	<para>
+        &PRODUCT; provides an API that gives programmatic access to all the
+        management features available in the UI. The API is maintained and
+        documented. This API enables the creation of command line tools and
+        new user interfaces to suit particular needs. See the Developer’s 
+        Guide and API Reference, both available at 
+        <ulink url="http://cloudstack.apache.org/docs/en-US/index.html">Apache CloudStack Guides</ulink>

+        respectively. 
+	</para>
+	<para>
+        The &PRODUCT; pluggable allocation architecture allows the creation
+        of new types of allocators for the selection of storage and Hosts. 
+        See the Allocator Implementation Guide 
+        (<ulink url="http://docs.cloudstack.org/CloudStack_Documentation/Allocator_Implementation_Guide">http://docs.cloudstack.org/CloudStack_Documentation/Allocator_Implementation_Guide</ulink>).
+	</para>
+	<para>
+		<emphasis role="bold">High Availability</emphasis>
+	</para>
+    <para>
+       &PRODUCT; has a number of features to increase the availability of the
+       system. The Management Server itself may be deployed in a multi-node 
+       installation where the servers are load balanced. MySQL may be configured
+       to use replication to provide for a manual failover in the event of
+       database loss. For the hosts, &PRODUCT; supports NIC bonding and the use
+       of separate networks for storage as well as iSCSI Multipath.

+  <para>By default, all incoming traffic to the public IP address is rejected by the firewall. To
+    allow external traffic, you can open firewall ports by specifying firewall rules. You can
+    optionally specify one or more CIDRs to filter the source IPs. This is useful when you want to
+    allow only incoming requests from certain IP addresses.</para>
+  <para>You cannot use firewall rules to open ports for an elastic IP address. When elastic IP is
+    used, outside access is instead controlled through the use of security groups. See <xref
+      linkend="add-security-group"/>.</para>
+  <para>In an advanced zone, you can also create egress firewall rules by using the virtual router.
+    For more information, see <xref linkend="egress-firewall-rule"/>.</para>
+  <para>Firewall rules can be created using the Firewall tab in the Management Server UI. This tab

+      recovery, performance, and legal obligations. With GSLB, workloads can be distributed across
+      multiple data centers situated at geographically separated locations. GSLB can also provide an

+      <title>How Does GSLB Works in &PRODUCT;?</title>
+      <para>Global server load balancing is used to manage the traffic flow to a web site hosted on
+        two separate zones that ideally are in different geographic locations. The following is an
+        illustration of how GLSB functionality is provided in &PRODUCT;: An organization, xyztelco,
+        has set up a public cloud that spans two zones, Zone-1 and Zone-2, across geographically
+        separated data centers that are managed by &PRODUCT;. Tenant-A of the cloud launches a
+        highly available solution by using xyztelco cloud. For that purpose, they launch two
+        instances each in both the zones: VM1 and VM2 in Zone-1 and VM5 and VM6 in Zone-2. Tenant-A
+        acquires a public IP, IP-1 in Zone-1, and configures a load balancer rule to load balance
+        the traffic between VM1 and VM2 instances. &PRODUCT; orchestrates setting up a virtual
+        server on the LB service provider in Zone-1. Virtual server 1 that is set up on the LB
+        service provider in Zone-1 represents a publicly accessible virtual server that client
+        reaches at IP-1. The client traffic to virtual server 1 at IP-1 will be load balanced across
+        VM1 and VM2 instances. </para>
+      <para>Tenant-A acquires another public IP, IP-2 in Zone-2 and sets up a load balancer rule to
+        load balance the traffic between VM5 and VM6 instances. Similarly in Zone-2, &PRODUCT;
+        orchestrates setting up a virtual server on the LB service provider. Virtual server 2 that
+        is setup on the LB service provider in Zone-2 represents a publicly accessible virtual
+        server that client reaches at IP-2. The client traffic that reaches virtual server 2 at IP-2
+        is load balanced across VM5 and VM6 instances. At this point Tenant-A has the service
+        enabled in both the zones, but has no means to set up a disaster recovery plan if one of the
+        zone fails. Additionally, there is no way for Tenant-A to load balance the traffic
+        intelligently to one of the zones based on load, proximity and so on. The cloud
+        administrator of xyztelco provisions a GSLB service provider to both the zones. A GSLB
+        provider is typically an ADC that has the ability to act as an ADNS (Authoritative Domain
+        Name Server) and has the mechanism to monitor health of virtual servers both at local and
+        remote sites. The cloud admin enables GSLB as a service to the tenants that use zones 1 and
+        2. </para>

+      <para>Tenant-A wishes to leverage the GSLB service provided by the xyztelco cloud. Tenant-A
+        configures a GSLB rule to load balance traffic across virtual server 1 at Zone-1 and virtual
+        server 2 at Zone-2. The domain name is provided as A.xyztelco.com. &PRODUCT; orchestrates
+        setting up GSLB virtual server 1 on the GSLB service provider at Zone-1. &PRODUCT; binds
+        virtual server 1 of Zone-1 and virtual server 2 of Zone-2 to GLSB virtual server 1. GSLB
+        virtual server 1 is configured to start monitoring the health of virtual server 1 and 2 in
+        Zone-1. &PRODUCT; will also orchestrate setting up GSLB virtual server 2 on GSLB service
+        provider at Zone-2. &PRODUCT; will bind virtual server 1 of Zone-1 and virtual server 2 of
+        Zone-2 to GLSB virtual server 2. GSLB virtual server 2 is configured to start monitoring the
+        health of virtual server 1 and 2. &PRODUCT; will bind the domain A.xyztelco.com to both the
+        GSLB virtual server 1 and 2. At this point, Tenant-A service will be globally reachable at
+        A.xyztelco.com. The private DNS server for the domain xyztelcom.com is configured by the
+        admin out-of-band to resolve the domain A.xyztelco.com to the GSLB providers at both the
+        zones, which are configured as ADNS for the domain A.xyztelco.com. A client when sends a DNS
+        request to resolve A.xyztelcom.com, will eventually get DNS delegation to the address of
+        GSLB providers at zone 1 and 2. A client DNS request will be received by the GSLB provider.
+        The GSLB provider, depending on the domain for which it needs to resolve, will pick up the
+        GSLB virtual server associated with the domain. Depending on the health of the virtual
+        servers being load balanced, DNS request for the domain will be resolved to the public IP
+        associated with the selected virtual server.</para>
