Another way to look at it would be to make isolated network a special case of VPC (having a
single tier).

Subject: [DISCUSS] Network offerings for Isolated Networks / VPCs

Hi all,

Currently, there is no reliable way to tell whether an offering was created
for an Isolated Network or for tiers in a VPC. This is determined based on
providers. (ConfigurationManagerImpl.isOfferingForVpc)

In the UI, you have the possibility to check a flag for "VPC" during
creation of a network offering. This flag changes the list of providers per
service. However, this flag does not get sent to the backend, and is not
persisted as a result.

It is possible to create a network offering that was originally meant for
VPCs, but without using any of those providers which results in a network
offering that can't be used by VPCs because of this check. This is very
confusing for an end user, and is actually wrong.

Short term, I suggest we persist this flag "forvpc" in order to determine
whether a network offering is meant for VPCs or Isolated Networks.

Long term, we might want to rethink this implementation to a more generic
solution to make network offerings usable for both Isolated Networks and
VPCs at once, if possible.

What do you guys think?

Kind regards,
Nick Livens
