I agree with Subbu. You'll want that to be a region so that the control
plane is mostly contained. Only Keystone (and swift if you have that) would
be doing lots of site to site communication to keep databases in sync.
http://docs.openstack.org/arch-design/content/multi_site.html is a good
read on the topic.
