I think the pdf is still a good design but as the rest of the guys said is
only available on MX platforms.

Today DCI (Datacenter Interconnection)  is a big challenge, applications
such as vmotion requires the same subnet be extended trough many sites. VPLS
is one of the options as well MPLS L2VPN or proprietary stuff like OTV from

 I´m not aware of another operational option from Juniper  besides  VPLS.
However  I saw in the last year some efforts from Juniper  guys to solve the
problem with a new technology  BGP MAC  VPLS. It still a draft and I didn´t
see around in the last Junos Versions. Maybe we can see new developments

See draft below
