Load Balancing as a Service (LBaaS) is currently an advanced service of OpenStack Neutron that allows for proprietary and open-source load balancing technologies to drive the actual load balancing of requests.
The Avi Vantage Platform solves the critical “last mile problem” that OpenStack implementations face when it comes to application services such as deployment automation, self-service provisioning, load balancing, app analytics, and scalability. Avi integrates natively with OpenStack components such as Neutron, Nova Keystone, and Horizon to deliver a fully orchestrated, self-service driven OpenStack implementation.
