Abstract

This document presents a high-level architecture for building data- center Network Virtualization over Layer 3 (NVO3) networks. The architecture is given at a high level, which shows the major components of an overall system. An important goal is to divide the space into smaller individual components that can be implemented independently with clear inter-component interfaces and interactions. It should be possible to build and implement individual components in isolation and have them interoperate with other independently implemented components. That way, implementers have flexibility in implementing individual components and can optimize and innovate within their respective components without requiring changes to other components.

Abstract

   This document presents a high-level overview architecture for    building data-center Network Virtualization over Layer 3 (NVO3)    networks.  The architecture is given at a high level, showing the    major components of an overall system.  An important goal is to    divide the space into individual smaller components that can be    implemented independently with clear inter-component interfaces and    interactions.  It should be possible to build and implement    individual components in isolation and have them interoperate with    other independently implemented components.  That way, implementers    have flexibility in implementing individual components and can    optimize and innovate within their respective components without    requiring changes to other components.
