In the same situation, but no NSX, we go the multi-region way, with a 
common keystone and horizon.
So far, no real problem.

A glitch : we had to share a common Neutron network between the two 
regions (no other choice for the moment), and to be sure that there 
won't be any problem with the metadata service, we change the IP of one 
( And that was not just a config option, we had to 
modify the source code.
