Technical Summary This document presents a high-level architecture for building data center network virtualization overlay (NVO3) networks. The architecture is given at a high-level, showing the major components of an overall system. Working Group Summary The document is one of the base documents chartered for the NVO3 working group. The document was originally created by a design team to help define the protocol architecture that the NVO3 working group would be working on, and to provide guidelines to define the role of various protocols in a multi-tenant data center. NVO3 is chartered to address a multi-tenant data centre with a centralised control plane architecture, and one role of this document is to define what that architecture is so the working group could progress with developing or adopting the appropriate protocols for each of the functional elements. This document was subject to a second working group last call (on changes only in version 7) since there were significant additions to the text based on AD review. There were no concerns raised about the revised text during the second working group last call. There are two IPR declarations on the draft (2320 and 2538). Document Quality I have no concerns about the quality of the document. I believe it represents WG consensus, and it has been widely reviewed and discussed on the list over a number of years. Personnel The document shepherd is Matthew Bocci (firstname.lastname@example.org). The responsible Area Director is Alia Atlas (email@example.com).
