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
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).
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.
The document shepherd is Matthew Bocci (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The responsible Area Director is Alia Atlas (email@example.com).
