To set up VLANs for VMs, I may take use of many physicals, connect them
Configure them as VLAN trunks will result in a big broadcast domain, which
reduce the performance of network.
Is there any way to avoid it?

Another question is if I want to set up VLANs across router, what should I
If it is possible, how to extend VLANs in WAN/Internet ?

Thanks in advance.

                         /      \
                        /        \
            +----------+          +---------+
            |  switch  |          | switch  |
            +----------+          +---------+
              |      |              |      |
