Deploying BIG-IQ Virtual Edition in OpenStack

Before you get started, you need a security group, a key pair, and a floating IP address for each externally accessible interface. If you are unfamiliar with these prerequisites, refer to the OpenStack documentation for details. To deploy a BIG-IQ VE in your OpenStack environment, you perform the following tasks:
  • Upload a BIG-IQ disk image to the OpenStack environment Datastore.
  • Create a new disk volume instance.
  • Use the wizard to launch the new instance.
  • Power on the BIG-IQ VE virtual machine for the first time.
  • Set up the management network on the BIG-IQ virtual machine.
  • Determine whether you need to set the BIG-IQ VE MTU value and (it necessary) set it.
