Citrix Application Delivery Management


Before you integrate the Citrix ADC virtual instance with OpenStack platform, ensure that the following requirements are met:

Citrix ADM and OpenStack Software Requirements

  • Citrix ADM 12.1 is installed on a supported hypervisor workstation that meets the minimum hardware requirements system.

  • OpenStack components are installed and running.

  • Citrix ADM 12.1 supports the following OpenStack versions - Newton, Ocata, and Pike.

Citrix ADM Hardware Requirements

The following table lists the virtual computing resources that you should have on your OpenStack server to install Citrix ADC virtual instances.

Component Requirement
Virtual CPU 8
Storage Space 500 GB
Virtual Network Interfaces 1
Throughput 1 Gbps or 100 Mbps


The memory and hard disk requirements specified above are for deploying Citrix ADM on the OpenStack platform, considering that there are no other virtual machines running on the host. The hardware requirements for OpenStack depends on the number of virtual machines running on it.
