There is a project that aims at solving your use cases (at least from a
Its called L2GW and uses OVSDB Hardware VTEP schema (which is supported by
many physical appliances for switching capabilities)
Some information: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Neutron/L2-GW
There are also other possible solutions, depending what you are trying to
do and what is the physical applicance job.
