I think that the issue is with needing a controller. Unfortunately you can't
just replace VLANs with VXLANs unless there's some form of control plane.
You can do this in a distributed manner using broadcast to multicast
mechanisms but this AFAIK is not implemented in Openvswitch. I'm not quite
sure on the commercial aspects but XenServer 6.5 re-introduced the vSwitch
controller appliance (DVSC) so this could be a candidate but AFAIK, it's
only available on licensed versions of XenServer so any development would
likely come from Citrix. There was some work done by Hugo on ACS with
OpenDaylight but I think this ran into some issues with the Openvswitch
version on XS at the time. That's about all I know but hopefully this helps.
I'd be very interested to hear if anyone is actively doing any work on this
though.
