Hi all, in Midokura we are working on a blueprint to define a new kind of topology for floating ranges, as alternative to external network topology. It is based on the idea of a Provider Router that links directly with Tenant Routers using /30 networks. It aims to be more pure-floating, helping the deployment of floating ranges across different physical L2 Networks. (We know there is some interest in this) We think that also it might help in add Firewall specific policies at the edge of the cloud and define per-tenant or per-network QoS definitions.
Document is still WIP, with high level ideas and just some API details. But we would love to hear Neutron community feedback to go further in a steady way. In the implementation level, we are concerned in being compatible with current DVR and don't add a new SPOF in Neutron OVS plugin. So DVR developers feedback would be highly appreciated. We are also interested in chat about it during the summit, maybe during the Kilo L3 refractor BoF?  Thanks in advance!
