Unlocked Partners » Citrix

Mirantis and Citrix are partnering to facilitate deployment of Citrix NetScaler Application Delivery Controller in enterprise and service provider data centers, targeting the Mirantis NFV reference platform. NetScaler creates an ADC connectivity layer that can provide functionality such as Load Balancing on demand at any desired point in a VNF or virtualized infrastructure layer service chain. Citrix has also created a Fuel Plugin to simplify deployment of XenServer, a commercial virtualization platform based on the open-source Xen Project Hypervisor, opening up new avenues for enterprise application and desktop virtualization.

Citrix XenServer Fuel Plugin

This Fuel Plugin enables use of the XenServer open source hypervisor (versions 6.5 SP1 and 7.0) as a compute provider on Mirantis OpenStack versions from 6.1 to 9.0, with commercial support options from Citrix. An additional HIMN Tool is available to add Host Internal Management Network to guest VMs running on XenServer compute nodes.

Community Integration Demos

Citrix NetScaler Management and Analytics System (MAS)

NetScaler Management and Analytics System (MAS) is a centralized management solution that simplifies operations by providing administrators with enterprise-wide visibility and automating management jobs that need to be executed across multiple NetScaler instances. You can manage and monitor Citrix application networking products that include Citrix NetScaler MPX, Citrix NetScaler VPX, Citrix NetScaler Gateway, Citrix NetScaler SDX, Citrix NetScaler CPX, and Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN. You can use NetScaler MAS to manage, monitor, and troubleshoot the entire global application delivery infrastructure from a single, unified console.

This runbook details configuration and installation of NetScaler MAS 11.1 on Mirantis OpenSTack 9.0.

NetScaler Application Delivery Controller

The NetScaler load balancer integration in Neutron LBaaS implements all the LBaaS driver CRUD APIs defined in the IceHouse release: It implements all the defined operations on VIPs, Pools, Pool Members and Health Monitors. The integration consists of a driver class configured in the Neutron config file (neutron.conf), and the accompanying unit tests.
