In this post I try to collect links to all interesting RFCs and drafts related to DC, EVPN and network overlays.
Some of this documents are complete industry standards, some are drafts aiming to become such standarts, and others are just informational documents, often already outdated and forgotten, but despite this still interesting and useful. So don’t forget to pay attention to time frame each particular document was created and updated.
This document specifies the requirements for an Ethernet VPN (EVPN) solution, which addresses various VPLS issues.
This document describes procedures for BGP MPLS-based Ethernet VPNs (EVPN-MPLS).
This document summarizes operational experience in designing and operating large-scale data centers using BGP as the only routing protocol.
This document describes Virtual eXtensible Local Area Network (VXLAN), which is used to address the need for overlay networks within virtualized data centers accommodating multiple tenants.
This document describes issues associated with providing multi-tenancy in large data center networks and how these issues may be addressed using an overlay-based network virtualization approach.
This document provides a framework for Data Center (DC) Network Virtualization over Layer 3 (NVO3) and defines a reference model along with logical components required to design a solution.
This document specifies how Ethernet VPN (EVPN) can be used as a Network Virtualization Overlay (NVO) solution and explores the various tunnel encapsulation options over IP and their impact on the EVPN control-plane and procedures.
This document describes an Integrated Routing and Bridging (IRB) solution based on EVPN to address requirements of inter-subnet forwarding among hosts/VMs across different IP subnets.
This document defines a new EVPN route type for the advertisement of IP Prefixes and explains some use-case examples where this new route-type is used.
This document describes how Network Virtualization Overlays (NVO) can be connected to a Wide Area Network (WAN) in order to extend the layer-2 connectivity required for some tenants.
This document discusses how Ethernet Provider Backbone Bridging (PBB) can be combined with Ethernet VPN (EVPN).
This document examines address resolution issues related to the scaling of data centers with a very large number of hosts.
This document describes a set of network-based solutions for seamless Virtual Machine mobility in the data center.
This document proposes a method for inter-AS traffic engineering for use with the networks consisting of multiple BGP Autonomous-Systems (ASNs) under the same administrative control, such as eBGP DC fabrics.
Maybe you think something should be added to this list? Write a comment.
