Technical Summary This document summarizes operational experience in designing and operating large-scale data centers using BGP as the only routing protocol. The intent is to report on a proven and stable routing design that could be leveraged by others in the industry. The design presented in this document is based on operational experience with data centers built to support large-scale distributed software infrastructure. Working Group Summary This draft has been thoroughly discussed in the WG, very good feedback had been provided by SP and vendor community. The draft adoption and progress had received full support from the WG. All comments have been addressed. The draft is ready for publication. Document Quality There are existing implementations and multiple vendors have shown significant interest in the topic. Personnel Jeff Tantsura is the Document Shepherd.
