The proven scalability and extensibility of the BGP/MPLS IP VPNs (IP VPN) technology has made it an attractive candidate for data center/cloud virtualization. Virtualized end-system environment imposes additional requirements to MPLS/BGP VPN technology. This document provides the requirements for extending IP VPN technology (in original or modified versions) into the end-systems/hosts, such as a server in a data center.
