We have Mellanox switches with Cumulus Linux installed. Here you have a 

EVPN is a well known standard and it is also supported by Juniper, Cisco 

We have standard VLANs between servers and leaf switches, they are 
mapped to VxLANs between leafs and spines. In our env every leaf switch 
is a VTEP. Servers have MLAG/CLAG connections to two leaf switches. We 
also have anycast gateways on leaf switches. From servers point of view 
our network is like a very big switch with hundreds of ports and 
standard VLANs.

We are using VxLAN networking for OpenStack, but it is configured on top 
of network VxLANs, we dont mix them.
