---------------------------------------

             Summary: framework for CloudStack to orchestrate virtual network appliances to
provide network services
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-655
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-655
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: New Feature
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: Network Controller
            Reporter: Murali Reddy
            Assignee: Murali Reddy
             Fix For: 4.1.0


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
zone.
