I am a learner in content networking, & currently working on a Design requirement involving ? request assistance from the experts again.
In my scenario, the clients will hit the VIP on port 80/81, and the CSS shall load balance between 2 IIS servers via L2 switches. I shall use Cisco CSS 11503?s in redundancy.
The servers and the VIP should be on the same subnet and the CSS should also perform session stickiness and also have redundancy between the CSS?s.
The setup might look something like this.
User port -80/81
What are my options for redundancy?
Can I do VIP redundancy on the client side, where traffic is coming in & do interface redundancy on the server side and using the redundant interface IP address as the default gateway for the servers OR, should I be looking at Box-to-Box redundancy option.
What are my options for sticky, as we will only use HTTP on port 80/81
I was planing of using Arrow point cookie or sticky srcip.
Note: Real servers and the VIP shall use the same subnet. how is the sticky and redundency compatibility in this case?
