I'm writing to you because I'd like to discute about the separation of
layer 2 and layer 3.

Can openstack network node only work on layer 2 with a dedicated server ?
and all layer 3 configuration done elsewere ?

The idea is :  netowk node manage layer 2 topologie (openvswitch/gre
tunnel) and  Layer 3  is dedicacted to virtual machine/application.
For evry tenant i'm thinking about a VM doing all L3 jobs (router,
firewall, loadbalancing, ....)

Did you see what i mean ? Is it possible ?

Thank you in advance !


ps : sorry for my english ;)
