Subject Is it possible to use Juniper SRX for Firewall functions in conjunction with Virtual Router for Load Balancing functions
Date Sun, 20 Jan 2013 04:23:38 GMT
CloudStack Users,

We are currently designing a new solution with specific security 
requirements and are considering implementing a Juniper SRX series 
firewall.  In order to protect the load balancer from public traffic we 
intend on deploying an 'in-line' topology where the SRX sits in front of 
the load balancer (physical or virtual).

Is it possible (and preferably tested) to use SRX for 
firewall/port-forwarding/VPN and use the CloudStack Virtual Router for load 
balancing?  I know the documentation states that you must use SRX with F5 
for 'in-line' mode, however I can't see why you couldn't use the virtual 
router instead of a F5.

If anyone has experience and can advise that would be greatly appreciated.
