Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-5398) Cloudstack network-element plugin to orchestrate Juniper's switches
Date Fri, 06 Dec 2013 08:52:35 GMT
Pradeep H Krishnamurthy created CLOUDSTACK-5398:

             Summary: Cloudstack network-element plugin to orchestrate Juniper's switches
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-5398
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: New Feature
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: Network Controller
    Affects Versions: 4.4.0
            Reporter: Pradeep H Krishnamurthy
             Fix For: 4.4.0

This feature is about a Cloudstack network-element plugin to orchestrate Juniper's switches.

As a first-cut, we are focussing on L2 services and we will write a NetworkGuru. As part of
it's implement() method we will:
(1)Create the required logical interfaces on the Juniper switches (EX,QFX)
(2)Create the required VLANs on the Juniper switches (EX,QFX). 
(3)Configure VLAN membership on the interfaces

Our customers need this plugin in Cloudstack deployments to automatically orchestrate the
Juniper switches to create Virtual Networks. 
Without this plugin, there will be a manual intervention needed to configure the switches
(after figuring out the 
current configuration of the switch). 

We have a Network Management Platform (called JUNOS SPACE) which is heavily used by customers
to orchestrate  Juniper's  networking devices.
It also exposes REST-ful APIs for integration with 3rdParty tools.
The proposed Juniper's Cloudstack network-element plugin leverages these REST-ful APIs to
appropriately orchestrate Juniper's switches to
create Virtual Networks
