I'm wondering how to setup multiple usecases. I would like to have a "default" flat network, where the VM's will be provided a public IP directly. Then a provider router/tenant router with VLAN setup to be able to tie into my existing network and applications.

Do I need separate nics for each of these designs?

I'm using grizzly, but might be willing to go to havanna if it would fit my needs better.

I'm guessing the setup is something like whats referred to here:

I am afraid you can only use FLAT or VLAN style at the same time base on current Neutron's implementaion.

Found this line in the documentation: Currently, Compute with nova-network supports these kinds of networks, implemented in different “Network Manager” types: Flat Network Manager Flat DHCP Network Manager VLAN Network Manager These networks can co-exist in a cloud system. However, because you can't yet select the type of network for a given project, you cannot configure more than one type of network in a given Compute installation. (
