VPN4DC - Layer 3 Virtual Private Networks for Data Centers

Description: Today when two or more data centers are inter-connected through VPNs or any WAN networks, hosts or VMs within data centers are managed separately from the VPN provider’s management system. The provisioning process for services provided by Service Providers’ data centers to join enterprise VPNs, is often manual, and thus has long turn up time. Security, scalability, and operational efficiency are issues due to lack of standardized automation procedure for hosts in provider data centers to join VPN. The purpose of the VPN4DC Working Group will be to define requirements and solutions for establishing host-to-host connectivity through layer 3 VPNs for Data Center and Cloud Services.
