This document examines address resolution issues related to the
scaling of data centers with a very large number of hosts.  The scope
of this document is relatively narrow, focusing on address resolution
(the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) in IPv4 and Neighbor Discovery
(ND) in IPv6) within a data center.  This document is a product of the 
Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

This document is a product of the Address Resolution for Massive numbers of hosts in the Data center Working Group of the IETF.
