> 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
