Fuel Plugins

Starting with version 6.0, Fuel supports a Pluggable architecture.

Fuel plugins allow you to install and configure additional capabilities for your cloud, such as additional storage types and networking functionality. For example, a Load Balancing as a Service (LBaaS) plugin allows you to add network load balancing functionality to your cloud so that incoming traffic can be spread across multiple nodes. Or you might want to use a GlusterFS plugin so that you can use a Gluster file system as backend for Cinder volumes.
