- NetScaler in a Private Cloud Managed by Microsoft Windows Azure Pack and Cisco ACI
You can use a NetScaler appliance for load balancing in a private cloud that is managed through Microsoft Windows Azure Pack. The network for the private cloud is automated by using Cisco ACI and NetScaler.
This solution involves many integration points, such as Windows Azure Pack (WAP) to Cisco APIC, Cisco APIC to System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM), and Cisco APIC to NetScaler. As a tenant in the private cloud, you can enable NAT, provision network services, and add a load balancer.
WAP supports tenant and administrator portals where an administrator can perform administrative tasks such as ACI registration, VIP range, NetScaler device association with virtual machine cloud, tenant user account creation, and so on. Tenants can log on to the WAP Tenant Portal and configure the network, bridge domains, and Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRFs), and make use of the NetScaler load balancing and RNAT features.
The following illustration provides an overview of the solution:
