     Virtual Machine Mobility Solutions for L2 and L3 Overlay Networks
                          draft-ietf-nvo3-vmm-06

Abstract

   This document discusses Virtual Machine (VM) mobility solutions that
   are commonly used in overlay-based Data Center (DC) networks. The
   objective is to describe the solutions and their impact on moving
   VMs (and applications) from one rack to another connected by the
   Overlay networks.

   For layer 2 networks, it is based on using an NVA (Network
   Virtualization Authority) - NVE (Network Virtualization Edge)
   protocol to update the ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) table or
   neighbor cache entries after a VM (virtual machine) moves from an
   Old NVE to a New NVE.  For Layer 3, it is based on migration of
   address and connection  after the move.
