The VM-Series firewall for OpenStack allows you to deploy
the VM-Series firewall on the KVM hypervisor running on a compute
node in your OpenStack environment. This solution uses Heat Orchestration
Templates and bootstrapping to deploy the VM-Series firewall and
a Linux server. The VM-Series firewall protects the deployed Linux server
by inspecting the traffic going in and out of the server. The sample
bootstrap files allow the VM-Series firewall to boot with basic
configuration for handling traffic.
These heat template files and the bootstrap files combine to
create two virtual machines, the VM-Series firewall and Linux server,
in a network configuration similar to that shown below.
