I need beta testers, so if you have some time to test, tell me , I'll send you gui patches and doc

I think only dpdk, but it's not implemented in proxmox currently. (and this need a lof of tuning, with hugepages, vhost-user interfaces,....)
I still waiting for xdp implementation for bridge :)


But for all others thing, you can do it with classic linux interfaces (vxlan , gre, ipip tunnel ) , bridge, vlan-aware bridge, qinq, ...
Still don't understand why some users want ovs currently ;)  (no userland = no problem , trust the kernel :)

Yay ! 
A bit too busy right now, but can't wait to test all your SDN plugins. 
BTW, is there still advantages for OVS bridges over standard linux bridges once your SDN stuff is out ? IIUC, most tunneling can be done with standard (vlan-aware) Linux bridges. So, what's left for OVS ?
