Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Integrate Cisco ASA 1000v into CloudStack
Date Mon, 11 Mar 2013 13:11:12 GMT
Updated the FS with following changes:

- Use case section updated, classified use cases that will be supported for 4.2 and beyond.
Also removed items like VSG and VXLAN support to "Open items" section as not planning to do
them as part of "ASA integration".
- Updated the deployment model section and added HV limitation (Vmware only feature)
- Also updated the API section with parameter details.

Comments/feedback?

Thanks,
Koushik
