Can anyone explain how to add additional IP address to an instance? I have only one flat network with pool of IPs. Thanks.

Two ways:

add more interfaces to an instance. This way every IP will have it's own policer(if you have any), and if you're using neutron port security(iptables filters), you'll have to assure that source traffic is being sent from the interface that this IP belongs to, otherwise it will be blocked by iptables. Latter can be achieved with iproute2 in linux, no idea about other OSs;

add more IPs to port. Using neutron port-update you can add more than 1 fixed IP to a port, like this:

$ neutron port-update --fixed-ip subnet_id=b63cb5ae-44dd-463a-b27b-686780395bee,ip_address= --fixed-ip subnet_id=b63cb5ae-44dd-463a-b27b-686780395bee,ip_address= --fixed-ip subnet_id=b63cb5ae-44dd-463a-b27b-686780395bee,ip_address= b9f0b04f-a729-46b0-b087-d6a546def45b

$ neutron port-show b9f0b04f-a729-46b0-b087-d6a546def45b
--- output skipped ---
| fixed_ips         | {"subnet_id": "b63cb5ae-...", "ip_address": ""} |
|                       | {"subnet_id": "b63cb5ae-...", "ip_address": ""} |
|                       | {"subnet_id": "b63cb5ae-...", "ip_address": ""} |

This way all IPs will have shared policer, and you don't have to worry about source traffic stickiness. DHCP behaviour hasn't been tested, so either test it youself, or use static configuration. This has been tested, and works as of Newton release.

Multiple IPs to the same NIC: You need to create a port and add IP addresses. For example, openstack port set --fixed-ip subnet=<subnet>,ip-address=<ip-address> and repeat the fixed-ip option. Then use that port to launch the instance: openstack server create --nic port-id=....

Multiple NICs: Just repeat the nic option of the openstack server create command.
