Data center operators deploy a variety of layer 4 through layer 7 service functions in both physical and virtual form factors. Most traffic originating, transiting, or terminating in the data center is subject to treatment by multiple service functions. This document describes use cases that demonstrate the applicability of Service Function Chaining (SFC) within a data center environment and provides SFC requirements for data center centric use cases, with primary focus on Enterprise data centers.
