Several IETF drafts relate to the use of overlay networks to support large scale virtual data centers. This draft provides a framework for Network Virtualization over L3 (NVO3) and is intended to help plan a set of work items in order to provide a complete solution set. It defines a logical view of the main components with the intention of streamlining the terminology and focusing the solution set.
