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 13.0 is installed on a supported hypervisor workstation that meets the minimum hardware requirements system.

  • OpenStack components are installed and running.

  • Citrix ADM 13.0 supports the following OpenStack versions - Newton, Ocata, Pike, and Queens.

Citrix ADM Hardware Requirements

Ensure the following virtual computing resources are 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 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 depend on the number of virtual machines running on it.
