Subject [jira] [Updated] (CLOUDSTACK-7995) Cloudstack user can create and manage shared networks in a simpler way
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2014 22:22:12 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-7995?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Luis Henrique Okama updated CLOUDSTACK-7995:
--------------------------------------------
    Description: 
Originally in Cloudstack, only the root administrator is able to create shared networks, since
it requires a full understanding of the topology to provide accurate information about the
new shared network, e.g. IP range, netmask, gateway, VLAN ID and so on. 

GloboNetwork network plugin provides a much simpler way to create shared networks, allowing
a regular Cloudstack user to create and manage shared networks by providing name, description
and zone/environment in which he or she wants it to be deployed. This is possible thanks to
an external open source API called GloboNetworkAPI.

The open source 'GloboNetworkAPI' provides a simple way to manage multi-vendor network equipment,
including routers, switches and load balancers. It is responsible for automatically creating
and removing VLAN/networks, allocating and deallocating IP addresses, applying load balancer
rules and many other features and is equipped with a web interface to easily manage all these
resources.

	This proposal includes both the GloboNetwork plugin and the API client to greatly reduce
complexity when dealing with shared networks and allow an external network hardware to act
as router instead of a VirtualRouter.
