  • 1.  OVS Access Ports

    Is it possible to have NSX manage and control an Open vSwitch where the OVS's ports are virtual ports, but not connected to VM's?

    The use cases involves building vApps within vCloud. We want to (1) connection multiple vApps together, and also be able to connect remote users into the vApps. We currently do this via Open vSwitch and Onos (Opensource SDN controller). The OvS is just a virtual machine within the vApp, with ports on virtual networks. I am interested if this could be done via NSX, without integrating at the hypervisor layer?
