I've a cluster of 40 Proxmox nodes and I want to start offer private network to my clients,
Each client of me may have few VMs on different nodes, and it's not static, they may add/remove VMs.
My question is if I want to setup OVS based private networking it's necessary to add GRE for each two servers? this way I will have difficulties adding/removing new Proxmox nodes to all servers' configurations.

My servers are all connected via layer2 switches, but I can't add so many vlans on them.
