Some network operators build and operate data centers that support
over one hundred thousand servers.  In this document, such data
centers are referred to as "large-scale" to differentiate them from
smaller infrastructures.  Environments of this scale have a unique
set of network requirements with an emphasis on operational
simplicity and network stability.  This document summarizes
operational experience in designing and operating large-scale data
centers using BGP as the only routing protocol.  The intent is to
report on a proven and stable routing design that could be leveraged
by others in the industry.

This document is a product of the Routing Area Working Group Working Group of the IETF.
