Should My Hypervisor be VTEPs or my TOR Switches?

I’m planning on designing a private cloud infrastructure. The hypervisors I’m using have built in vxlan functionality, should I use it or trunk vlans to the TOR Switches and let the switches be the Virtual tunnelling endpoints in the virtual overlay network? I don’t know if it will affect compute performance of the hypervisor host, but it’s an excellent feature since the hypervisors establish the tunnels between themselves. Or should I use a mixed environment where the multi tenanct overlay is maintained by the servers and vm migration overlay network should be handled by the switches? Any advice would be helpful. Also in the market for open source network operating systems to function on TOR switches, I plan on using white box switches.
