Subject Re: VPC virtual router NIC limit
Date Thu, 07 Jan 2016 10:28:13 GMT
Hoi Erik,

You then don’t need eth interfaces for each tier and create a virtual interface in the openvswitch
bridge instead. This has virtually no limit.

Openvswitch also brings features like vxlan connections between routers and such, so could
be very interesting.

Regards,
Remi
