Load Balancer as a Service (LBaaS) for OpenStack

OpenStack delivers the benefits of programmability and the flexibility of cloud orchestration and automation. The OpenStack use cases for application networking and elasticity need to match these automation and self-service goals. Yet OpenStack implementation often leads to challenges in networking, scalability and load balancing.

Why? Legacy load balancing appliances are extremely complex to integrate, require manual provisioning and can’t scale on demand. At the same time, open source solutions do not have the enterprise-grade features to move workloads into production. This leaves a gap that must be bridged between legacy and open source solutions.
