I have a pfsense appliance that serves as my router. I have four hypervisors that I want to hook up to one of the router interfaces through a switch. The hypervisors will house multiple VMs that are "bridged" to the router interface.
router ⇆ switch ⇆ 4 hypervisor ports (hosting up to 16 VMs at a time)
- Should I get a smart switch and create VLANs to segment the hypervisor network?
- OR Should I set-up VLANs from the router interface? In this case will all inter-hypervisor traffic be routed through the switch or the router?
- Will the network scale well if I add more hypervisors?
