Apache HTTP web server has been by far the most popular web server on the Internet today. Apache HTTP web server tops the list of the most used web server applications in the world, surpassing 100 million web sites. Apache HTTP web servers can run on multiple variants of Linux, Unix and Windows platforms.
Firewall or IPS/IDS (Intrusion Prevention System/ Intrusion Detection System) devices usually have difficulties inspecting SSL traffic because the content is encrypted. Some devices offer internal SSL decryption/encryption support but usually the performance requirements are not satisfied. To alleviate this problem, A10 Networks has introduced the "SSL Forward Proxy" feature, also known as "SSL Intercept". When configured for SSL Intercept, the AX Series Application Deliver Controller (ADC/Load Balancer) intercepts SSL encrypted traffic, decrypts it and forwards it through a firewall or Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). Another AX Series Load Balancer then takes this traffic and encrypts it again, and sends it to the remote destination.

This guide is for the A10 Networks® LBaaS Driver, which is specifically designed to manage A10 Thunder™ and AX Series Application Delivery Controller (ADC) appliances.
In this installation guide, we will cover the architecture of the A10/OpenStack environment and the requirements for installing the A10 LBaaS Driver. Expectedly, an updated community-supported driver will be in the Juno release of OpenStack. Note that the community version of this driver is different from what A10 supports—the current community version does not support the spin up of software instances. This feature will be available in the later Juno release, but should the user desire a greater degree of customization to extend Horizon and other components, we recommend using A10’s version as the community supported model will present less feature versatility than our inhouse solution.
Organizations are increasingly dependent on the availability of their services and their ability to connect to the Internet. Downtime results in immediate revenue loss.
