> With the availability of virtual network appliances that can provide L2-L7 network services
from multiple vendors its desirable to have a framework through which support for virtual
network appliances can be integrated.
> Main requirement would be to orchestrate provisioning the network appliance as VM from
the template. Current Virtual Network appliance manager which actually orchestrates spinning
up virtual router, can be generalised to provide abstract implementation of virtual network
appliance provisioning. Then specific implementation for virtual router, Vyatta, NetScaler
VPX etc can be extended out of abstract implementation.
> Also, CloudStack will need a driver model for server resources that implements hypervisor
support, so that network appliance specific logic to add nic's, bridge, configure IP address
etc can be plugged-in to hypervisor specific resource layer.
> Apart from providing framework, I would like use this framework and add support for provisioning
NetScaler VPX as network appliance providing EIP/ELB service to the guest network in the advanced
> Release Planning:
> Dev list discussion:
> Functional spec: unknown
> Feature branch: unknown
