I am in the process of having a seperate link (IP) installed between two of my Data Centre sites. The SAN is in one of them and I will be extending it (via FCIP) to the other once this big link is ready.
There will be a combination of SAN traffic and server 2 server traffic (for business continuity). No client/server traffic though (link will be on a different network).
I'm undecided as to connect both ends with a router (7000vxr series say) or L3 switch (3750G series).
I would rather like to do it with switches because of the performance benefits (not to mention costs).
Are there any hard and fast rules as to when to use one or the other.
thanks in advance
