[Openstack] load balancer as a service for all protocols

  I have a openstack juno cloud with one controller+neutron node and 
three compute nodes. I want to create a load balancer for balancing the 
load on a set of VMs of same type. The load to these VMs would come from 
VMs on the same subnet and the the communications are using different 
protocols i.e. TCP and UDP. I read about HAproxy lbaas and lvs lbaas. 
HAproxy is protocol dependent which would not suit for the multiple 
protocol scenario and LVS is a plugin on the router which too would not 
work. Are there any variation of lbaas to suit this need. Also, can any 
of the above (HAproxy or LVS) be modified to suit my need? Please guide 
me on this.
