Bug Description

Today, to realize connectivity between two OpenStack clouds (e.g. two distinct OpenStack deployments, or two OpenStack regions, for instance) some options are available, such as floating IPs, VPNaaS (IPSec-based), and BGPVPNs.

However, none of these options are appropriate to address use cases where all
the following properties are desired:

* interconnection consumable on-demand, without admin intervention (possible with floating IPs, VPNaaS, but not with the BGP VPN interconnections API extension)

* have network isolation and allow the use of private IP addressing end-to-end (possible with VPNaaS, and BGP VPN interconnections, but not with floating IPs)

* avoid the overhead of packet encryption (possible with floating IPs, and BGP VPN interconnections, but by construction not with VPNaaS)

The goal of this RFE is to propose a solution to provide network connectivity
between two or more OpenStack deployments or regions, respecting these
constraints.
