I'm going to assume you're talking about Heat autoscaling here, in which
case the answer depends on which LoadBalancer resource you want to use.

The cloudformation-compatible LoadBalancer resource spins up a VM running
haproxy, with no dependency on neutron, but if you want to use the Neutron
LBaaS interfaces, and the OS::Neutron::LoadBalancer resource, you will need
Neutron ;)



In summary, if you want to make use of the native as opposed to
cfn-compatible autoscaling functionality, it's probably best to use
