You need a flat network if you want to map an external network in your cloud to a physical network in your datacenter. The external network will be of type flat.

Your users may not have the need to create their own networks. They need i stances connected to the internet or intranet. One or more flat networks are fine in this case.

If the users in your cloud require the ability to set up their own network structures consisting of several tiers and routers, their virtual networks must be separated from each other, although they are typically implemented on a single physical network. Neutron offers VLAN, VXLAN and GRE as separation mechanisms.

GRE removes these limits but since it consists of a separate IP type, routers may not like it. VXLAN uses UDP, which is normally not blocked by routers.
